As the publication writes, the cosmic body is a Halley-type comet. This fact means that it will occur once or twice in a person’s entire life. This comet completes its rotation every 71.3 years and will make its closest pass to the Sun on April 21.

By the way, this comet 12P/Pons-Brooks was, according to some assumptions, first noticed in the 14th century. It is named after astronauts Jean-Louis Pons and William Robert Brooks, who observed it in the 19th century. It is known that its properties are that when the pressure inside the comet increases, it explodes with dust, gas and ice. One of these flares occurred last year, which is why it was called “The Devil’s Comet.”
