i remember this! The Eta Aquarid shower originates with material left behind by Halley's Comet when the sun boils dust and ice from its nucleus around the time of perihelion. This photo from May 1986 during its last pass by Earth.

Each spring as Earth passes through the debris trail from Halley’s Comet the cosmic bits burn up in our atmosphere and result in the annual Eta Aquarid meteor shower.

Halley's Comet. Photograph by James Balog in 1986. The return of Halley's Comet in my lifetime was not as spectacular as it was in 1910. I did not see it myself, the weather was overcast  for most of the period it could be seen in my part of the world.

This portion of the Bayeux Tapestry shows Halley's Comet during its appearance in 1066. <br />

Halley's Comet appeared at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 (Bayeux Tapestry).

MY OWN WORKS: The bones were discovered in Utah, underneath a mine that was supposedly haunted by a worker that was killed in a mineshaft collapse. The gold is from the California Gold Rush. A family was slaughtered and the gold was stolen. The killer later froze to death fleeing across the Rockies. The meteorite is a fragment of Halley's Comet that passed over as Samuel Colt made his special gun. What that does to the ring or the wearer, I'm not sure. You decide.......

Don't say that word. They'll hear you. Lmao SPN fans for the win! We always hear you. I want that ring. Is that weird?

The comet's frequent recurrence has played a part in historical events for millennia.
