I remember trying to see Halley's comet as a kid. It was in the backyard of our suburban house. All we could see was the fuzzy blob that, with hindsight, might not have even been the comet

Sadly when it was closest it wasn't the best comet like object to look at. My local observatory was open for viewing when it was heading toward earth and it looked like a fuzzy ball and at one pointy could almost see the tail. My pics looked like a cocktail glass shape of dots with a blob at the bottom.

It was exciting to shoot given its a once in a lifetime thing for most of us and also it was sooooo dark when the lights went out!
