comet vintage

and speaking of new year's day and cometary coincidences, how great is it, that in january of 1910, as the hype for halley's april return was already in full swing, a rare great comet suddenly appeared (the next would not arrive until 1927), which at its brightest, outshone the planet venus, and was possibly the brightest comet of the 20th century, and which, with an estimated orbital period of more than 57,000 years, had never been seen by human eye. 1910 was truly the year of the comet.
