I am very much interested in knowing of the return of the Halley's comet since its last arrival in 1910, and hope I can see it again as I did in that year.
I was then 14 years of age. Today this soldier of World War I is now over 90. But I presume in case I can see something of its return I will not have a most grand sight of it as I did in 1910.
In our present time there is so much pollution and smog in the air, that I doubt a clear visibility of it even when nearest to the Earth. Here in Riverside I even miss the great enjoyment of seeing myriads of beautiful stars in the sky. I would be so glad if I could only see one of them. And so as to the return of the Halley's comet, I do not think of seeing it as I did in 1910.
It was spring time, and even before the setting of the sun, still shining brightly, I had immense joy of seeing it as a tall giant with its ball nose just over the tip of the horizon and its fiery tail spurting up high to the sky, a most unforgettable wonder of my life.
