Halley’s Comet is known as one of the world’s most famous comets, visiting Earth every 75 to 79 years.

On Saturday, December 9, Halley’s Comet will reach aphelion, the farthest point from the Sun, on its 75-year journey across the solar system.

For almost the next 40 years, this comet will not be visible to Earth’s inhabitants.

When Halley’s Comet began its journey back into the inner solar system, it was about 35 times the distance from Earth to the Sun, beyond the orbit of Neptune.

For a lifetime of witnessing, humans on Earth will see Halley’s Comet in late July 2061 when it is expected to approach and may appear brighter than in 1986, when it was last seen.

The comet is named after the British astronomer Edmond Halley, who first calculated its orbit and made predictions of its return in the 18th century.

Throughout human history, Halley’s Comet has appeared many times.

In addition, Halley’s Comet also has a connection with Christmas celebrations and was the inspiration for the Biblical story of the “Star of Bethlehem”.

According to the story, the Magi or three wise men followed the star from the East to Bethlehem in search of the newborn king.

Some people believe that the star they are following is Halley’s Comet, although it is not certain whether this is true or not.
