People have always been fascinated and even frightened by comets. In ancient times they were thought to be omens of doom and disaster. Comet Halley was seen at the time the Normans invaded England in 1066. Some people also thought they might bring glad tidings - could the 'Star of Bethlehem' have been a comet?
Many famous paintings and Christmas scenes show comets, but we would like to see children's ideas! The full details are given on the Competition page.
