010409

The comet of 812 directly approaching Earth. The crescent shapes are really streamers from the tail seen head-on, the central part of the crescents and the white patch above where they join is the head of the comet. From 'Historia universalis omulum cometarum' by Stanislaus de Lubienietski (Amsterdam, 1666). Engraving.
