Amusing Antique Comet Pin

Antique comet pins tend to not be very realistic looking. Sometimes I wonder if they truly were created to represent comets, or if collectors just decided to call them comets. It’s not like I have an old photo of a Victorian woman wearing a comet pin at a Comet Halley party, or a painting of Georgian man gifting  his beloved a pin while a comet soars past in the sky. All I know is what today’s experts have told me, and I want to believe them so I do. This little pin here, complete with its own little diagram, helps me believe that these types of pins were indeed created to celebrate the comet!

Comet ISON is now in that little ball stage far away…but it is getting close and is becoming more visible to us. I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving, when Comet ISON is scheduled to be its most viewable from Earth!
