The mysterious connection between Mark Twain and Halley’s Comet


Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, was a famous American writer and a humourist. He was born on November 30, 1835, when Halley’s Comet passed by the earth. He predicted that he would ‘go out with it’ and sure enough he passed away the next morning of April 21, after the Halley’s Comet passed by the earth after 75 years on April 20, 1910.
