Halley’s Comet is set to light up Northamptonshire’s night sky.
The comet, which is usually seen once every 75 years, was not due to make an appearance again until 2061.
But a trail of Halley’s cosmic dust is expected to be visible to the naked eye tonight and tomorrow – wowing stargazers across the county.

This dust is likely to burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere – sparking a dramatic display which could produce 25 shooting stars every hour.
The display will be at its best around midnight in areas with low light pollution – fingers crossed for clear skies!
Halley’s Comet was discovered and named by Edmond Halley in 1705 but it has long been documented as early back as 240BC.
