Years of Halley’s Comet – Stamps of Jersey 1986.

Halley’s Comet is a short period comet visible every 75-76 years. It last appeared in 1986 and the next appearance is likely on 28 July 2061. It was discovered in 1758 by Edmond Halley and hence the name Halley’s Comet.

Jersey issued a set of three stamps tracing the history and years of the appearance of Halley’s Comet. The Bayeux tapestry which chronicles the battle of Hastings in 1066 also mentions the appearance of Halley’s comet in 1066.

10p – 912 AD -When Rollo the Viking was settling into the Dukedom of Normandy. 1066 AD -Battle of Hastings and Bayeux Tapestry.

22p -1301 AD -The comet looked down on Giotto painting his magnificent “Adoration of Magi” and included as an untimely star of Bethlehem.  In 1682 when Halley was forming the theory of periodic return.
