How do you make comets that spawn randomly out of the sky?

Easiest would be an animated shader. Easy in terms of construction, not in creating the shader.

I would make a brush for the comet. Create multiple scripts to initiate, move and remove the comet. Each should be a different path and each would need its own target_scriptrunner.

Then set a target_random pointed to the target_scriptrunners.

Comets will move in a random sequence.

Or did you just want one comet that only appeared randomly?

Like in artus_mine? There are some fxfiles called "meteor."

try fx_explosion trail. I think this was the way they made meteorites in game.
