Description
In specific yet non-technical language, Australian comet expert David Seargent mines historical records from all over the world to chronicle dozens of the most spectacular and notable comets ever witnessed, from "Aristotle's Comet" of 372 BC to McNaught's Comet of 2007. Halley's Comet is treated to its own chapter, and the book includes an introductory section on comets in general, explaining in lay terms what they are and correcting a few popular misconceptions.

"This book is exactly what it says on the cover.... There are detailed accounts of how the comets would have appeared and changed during their appearance ... and an analysis of the comments and drawings made at the time of observing."Astronomy Now
