The next time that Halley’s Comet returns for its 76 year fly by.   

It appeared in 1066 right before the great Battle at Hastings in England. It was seen as a bad omen for England’s King Harold who just a few months later would be killed on the battlefield by William the Conqueror’s men. Thus began the reign of King William I.

One thousand years later in 2066 quite possibly England will have another William as King.
