The Great Comet Of 1556
Photograph - Photograph
Comets universally foretold disasters and misfortune until the start of the scientific revolution. For example, public fears linked the Great Comet of 1556, shown in a woodcut from a German pamphlet, with earthquakes in that same year. Another century and more would pass before the growth of mathematical astronomy could seriously challenge credulous views of comets.
