Halley's Comet or Comet Halley , officially designated 1P/Halley ,  is a short-period comet visible from Earth every 75–76 years.     Halley is the only known short-period comet that is regularly visible to the naked eye from Earth, and the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice in a human lifetime.  Halley last appeared in the inner parts of the Solar System in 1986 and will next appear in mid-2061. 
Aquarids Peak. Get set for shooting stars all week long with the Eta Aquarid meteor shower, which will peak on the night of May 5 and into the following morning. Trace the path of the individual meteors and you will notice that they appear to originate from the eastern part of the sky, where Aquarius, the water bearer, can be seen this time of the year.
