Planetesimal of comet material at Lagrange Point of overlaping ‘Oort’ clouds?


Our Oort cloud of cometary objects is a significant fraction of light year away; http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ort_cloud the true outer aspect of solar system; described by angular inertia, from angular momentum transfer in a flat 3-space, and not gravitationally bound? Orion nebula is ~1300 lyrs away; and it’s visually contained Trapezium of 4 stars is ~1600 lyrs distance? http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…28astronomy%29  Each such star is ~ lyr apart.

Assume for simplicity that such stars were of 1 solar mass (perhaps 10-20 solar mass?), then in principle any respective cometary clouds might overlap. Would respecrive angular inertia be affected? What distribution of comet objects would result? Reducing 3-body problem to 2-body, gives Lagrange Points. http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagrange_points  If sufficient mass density, might a planetesimal of cometary objects aggregate at such Lagrange point for such close stars? Would an infrared telescope be able to test such a model?

Contrarily, the respective mass densities would likely be so small, that only angular inertia would govern such assumed smaller objects of respective clouds. Any significantly larger objects of respective clouds might interact gravitationally if sufficient mass number density. However overall, most likely not so favorable to planetesimal (of cometary matter) formation.
