Product details Account of a comet
Account of a comet
Two charts tracing the path of a comet, using fixed stars. Figure 3 and 4 from the paper Account of a comet by William Herschel, 1781. Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, volume 71, 492-501, 1781. William Herschel was the first to discover an entirely new planet, Uranus, using a telescope. He initially believed that the object was a comet but further evidence convinced him that this must be a planetary body.
