HALLEY S COMET; NOT VISIBLE FOR 75
YEARS, WILL BE SEEN NEXT WINTER
SAFETY UltTO '
Within a few months, according to
a man who makes the study of as
tronomy a side line, and who keeps
posted on current literature in that
line, the people of the world are go
ing to be allowed to see something in
the nature of a comet in the heavens
that has not been seen by man for
the past 75 years. Of course there
are many comets in the heavens, but
most of them are so small as to be in
visible to the naked eye and present
only a small image when observed
through one of the mighty telescopes
at our astronomical observatories.
The particular comet which will be
seen in this part of the world this
fall is known as the Ilalley comet. It
is the most famous of this sort of
heavenly bodies known in history. It
will be first sighted by the telescopes
some time within tne next two
months and will be Visible to the
naked eye during the first part of
next year. It is one of the brightest
comets known to man and upon sev
eral previous appearances has caused
panic among the heathen people of
the gipbe. When it appears visible to
the naked eye it will have the ap
pearance of a great ball of fire and
will have flying after it in its rapid
trip through the heavens a long tail
of light caused from the numerous
rare gases which are repelled by the
sun and driver, off the body of the
comet. It will remain visible during
the entire next spring, and as it is
probably the only chance in a life
time to see such a body in the sky
much interest will no doubt be taken
Yrnrx of I'orinrr Aiprnrau-r.
This particular comet was first
.n ,j B. c, one year after the
assassination of Julius Caesar. At
! mC 5t Wa8 thoueht by the peo
ple who saw it to bo-the spirit of
Laesar rHurniuK o the .rih i
jCorm of fire to take vengeance uj.ou
r.ne earea. n creaiea a great panic
among many of the races inhabiting
the earth at that time. Its next re
corded visible appearance was in 339
A. I)., and after that it appeared in
the years 550. 684, !:50. 1066. 1230,
1301. 1378. 1456, 1531 and 1607.
when Haley took possession of it and
began to watch its movements. At
that time he predicted its return in
175 7 and in that year it appeared in
all of Us splendor. It was last seen
in the year 1835. and since that time
many of the astronomers have com
puted the time when it should return.
They have all decided that it will
again illuminate the earth the latter
part of this year ,"nd many of them
are making special preparations to
hru I .ll.xl Swi.
The last bright comet, which came
into man's range of vision in the
heavens was in 1882. During that
year one appeared and caused much
study and observation among the
star gazers. Halley's comet, how
ever, is predicted to be much bright
er and to move across the sky much
slower, thus giving everybody a good
chance to see it. Many calculations
are now being made as to when the
comet will appear in the United
States. If it appears during the
night this country will bo illuminated
every nignt daring its stay in tne
heavens. If it appears in the day
time it will b-i visible and noticeable
but will not present such a beautiful
appearance in the heavens.
Mara l Approai-hiag;.
Another change In the heavens to
take place this fall Js the appearance
of the planet Mars at a distance of
only &30.000.000' miles from the
earth. This is considerably closer
than it' generally is to the earth, and
it is expected by the .astronomers that
it will hfford a greater opportunity
Tor study nl this Ume than ever Ikv
fore. . Mars was close to tho pnrtli in
1877, 1892, 1894 and 1907 but this
year it will be closer than any time
since 1tf77, and great preparations
are being made Tor its study. It is
believed by many astronomers that
I this planet is inhabited and many of
int'iii iniiiK inai iiiey win nue an ex
cellent opportunity of finding out def
initely this year. Even now the plan
