    When I was a kid, I remember my dad waking me and my sisters up early one dawn near Easter. He took us out to where we had a semblance of a view east. There in the brightening sky he pointed to a streak and said "that is a comet". I looked and looked, but the thing that looked like a short jet contrail didn't move the way the planes did. I remember the tail being forked like the trail from a multiengine jet.

    For some reason I thought that it was Comet Ikeya-Seki which was briefly brilliant in 1965. (I will mention Ikeya-Seki again later.) But I wasn't in school then yet, and I remember it being Easter Vacation and why do I have to get up early, moan whine?

    It was late March of 1969 so I was eight years old. I did not see another comet until I was 21 and Comet IRAS-Araki-Alcock zoomed past Earth and made binocular visibility two nights in a row and moving 90 degrees between nights.

    Comet Bennett was succeeded by Comet Kohoutek, which made a big public splash before turning out to be something of a dud. I remember the star charts in the Washington Post depicting a difficult horizon-hugging object, and I never saw it.

    Comet Bennett:

    It looked sort of like this to my eye, but I remember a kinked double tail. I don't trust my memory on that last score though ... I couldn't find a good picture of a double-tailed Bennett so ~shrug~

    Flat Iron, a medicine man of the Oglala Sioux, was raised by Sitting Bull. He had nine wives, 75 children and lived to be 107 years old. He gave Joseph Henry Sharp a prime tanned elk skin and said it was the “best you can find in two days ride in any direction.”
