Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens)
(November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910)

Twain was born two weeks after Halley’s Comet‘s closest
approach in 1835.

In 1909 he said…”I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It
is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it.
It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go
out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt:
"Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came
in together, they must go out together".

Twain’s prediction was accurate; he died of a heart attack
on April 21, 1910, in
Stormfield, one day after the comet’s
closest approach to Earth.
