Some people, like the Andaman islanders — that’s a community living in the Gulf of Bengal — see them as burning torches thrown into the air by forest spirits. Others, like some Australian aborigines, think they’re flaming sticks ridden by shamans. If you ask an astronomer, though, they’ll tell you that a comet is a large object made of dust and ice that orbits the Sun. Arguably one of the most famous space objects of this kind is Halley’s Comet. It has left a great impact on our history and understanding of these mysterious “falling stars.” When this comet passed Earth in August 1835, for example, it was blamed for the New York City fire that kept going for several nights. At the same time, the Seminole Indians in Florida saw the comet’s long tail and believed it marked the day they would lose their independence.
