Halley’s Comet: Harbinger of Doom…it appeared in 1066, just before the armies of William the Conqueror invaded England; it appeared in 1453, heralding the fall and rape of Constantinople; it appeared in 1910, just a few years before the devastation and ruin of the Great War – and when it returned in 1985 the sun went out…Released in the US as The Comet.
