The unpredictable appearances made it difficult for ancient observers to study them scientifically. Edmond Halley noticed that while planet orbits are nearly circular, the orbits of comets and long and narrow ellipses. When Halley plotted the orbits of the comets of 1531, 1607 and 1682, he discovered their orbits were very similar. Halley guessed the three comets where the same and predicted that the comet of 1682 would return in 1758. He died 16 years before it came true, but the comet whose return he predicted is now known as Halley's Comet in honor of his success. It is the most famous comet of all time.Be sure to add me to your favorites list!FREE US shipping. Canada and Mexico $2.00, Elsewhere $4.00. I only accept Pay Pal as payment.
