Bright comet* also had been seen in 1456, 1531 and 1607 and Halley decided these were the same one. He predicted it would appear at certain intervals of about 75 years and his prediction proved correct when the comet came into sight again in 1759, 1835 and 1910. His name was given to this bright comet with its bright tail. He catalogued the stars of the Southern Hemisphere with a telescope, the first time this work had been done in this way, Tlte appearance of the comet in 1066 is depicted in an ancient tapestry, Halley's comet is due to appear •gain in 1986. * • • FOR YOU TO DO: Bead a simple, well-illustrated book about comets, their paths through the sky and the length of time they •re visible to us. * * • (Martha Thornley of Charleston, S.C., wins |10 for this question.
