Comet of 66 AD (Halley) over Jerusalem, 1666. The English astronomer, Edmond Halley (1656-1742) was the first to suggest that appearances of bright comets every 76 years were in fact sightings of the same comet. Halley predicted it would return in 1758. The comet duly reappeared as he had said it would, albeit long after his death, and is named in his honour.
