Project Title: Halley



Our project is on Halley's Comet. We wanted to do this project because it interest us and we like to know about astronomy. Halley's Comet is about a 471 year old (or when it was discovered). The comet was found by Edmond Halley, the comet was then named "Halley's Comet" after Edmond Halley who discovered it. Halley's orbit is about 75 years from 1986.

We determine using Newton's Law to predict when the comet is going to appear and where it might be seen after 2061. By predicting other interesting facts we find about the comet.
