    Halley’s comet is one of the Earth’s most well known periodic comets, appearing every 75 years or so (last time in 1986).  The comet has a coma or atmosphere that surrounds it that reaches up to 100,000 km across and a tail that reaches back 100 million km.  Although its coma is huge, the comet’s nucleus is rather small:  it measures in around 15 km long, 8 km wide and 8 km thick.
