Event Details:
Join us to learn why comets were viewed as omens of death, doom and destruction throughout the ages. General public distrust of comets continued into the early 1900’s, when people panicked about possible poisonous gas being emitted with the nearby pass of Halley’s Comet despite reassurances of safety from scientists. Now, in the 21st century, we herald comets with awe and excitement – eager to catch a glimpse of these rare astronomical events.
