Discovered by K. Ikeya and T. Seki on September 18, 1965, Comet Ikeya-Seki was the brightest comet of the century. In fact, its 75,000,000-mile tail was so bright that it could be easily seen during daylight. After the comet passed within 300,000 miles of the Sun, on October 21, its nucleus broke into several fragments.
