Superb book, Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia, with amazing facts and trivia on comets...

Did you know Abraham Lincoln was looking at C/1858 L1 Donati's comet on the porch of his hotel in Jonesboro, Illinois before the debate with his Democratic colleague Stephen Douglas? How did the Skylab 4 astronauts observe comet C/1973 E1 Kohoutek... and the crew of Soyuz 13?
