Adjusting the speed of a blend

In this exercise, I'm going to show you how you can use control handles to adjust the speed of the blend. That is the rate at which the blend progresses from one shape to another. I'm still working inside this document called Cropped universe.ai. I have gone ahead and adjusted the path of the blend here. I made it all curvy as our comet speeds across the sky. Now notice that I can go ahead and change these control handles if like to change the speed at which the blend progresses. So for example, if I make one of the handles very short and actually you know what? I'll move it down here and I'll move this guy down as well so that we can see more of these comet trails. If I make this one very short, you will see that the blend progresses very, very quickly at first, and then if I make this one very long, the blend slows down as it comes into the comet, and you can tell it's slowing down because we are seeing sort of a lumpier transition right there at this point.
