How to keep the object rotation while using RotateAround in Unity?

I’ve got an object that has a comet-like sprite rotating around it. I’m using this code in LateUpdate() to make it rotate and keep the comet’s tail at the right position: transform.position = player.transform.GetChild(0).transform.position + (transform.position – player.transform.GetChild(0).transform.position).normalized * 2f; transform.RotateAround(player.transform.GetChild(0).transform.position, Vector3.forward, 100f * Time.deltaTime); It works fine until the object moves.
