Comet of 1882 as Seen from Streatham

from 35.00

Nov 4th, 4AM. From a drawing by T. E. Key.

'The nucleus gradually lengthened until it broke into four separate pieces, lying in a straight line, while the comet's head became enveloped in a sort of faint, nebulous tube, pointing towards the sun. Several small detached nebulous masses became also visible, which travelled along with the comet, though not with the same velocity. The comet became invisible to the naked eye in February, and was last observed telescopically in South America on the 1st of June, 1883.'
