With their luminous trails they cross the space and the curiosity of human beings since ancient times. Bringers of misfortune, warning signals or astronomical phenomena to investigate? The periodic and fleeting appearance of comets accompanies the evolution of civilizations, refines the tools of astronomy, inspires artistic, musical and poetic works that, as fixed stars, paint and direct the imagination of a historical era.
Follow the sightings of comets to know how to recognize and distinguish them: a journey through space and time to understand the profound relationship between man and sky, a journey that will lead the reader to discover the Great Comets that have illuminated ancient and contemporary skies, through the watchful eye of astronomers, artists and thinkers.
