Is this the one as fortold in the Bible?
Announcing Comet C/2002 T7 (LINEAR)

Explanation: A newly discovered comet may outshine most stars in the sky by May.
Designated Comet C/2002 T7 (LINEAR), the comet was discovered in 2002 October by project LINEAR. Many reports already place the comet as brighter than
magnitude 7, meaning that it can now be seen with binoculars.
Reports also indicate the comet already has a visible tail nearly the length of a full Moon. Since predicting the future brightness of comets is a
very tricky business, there remains the possibility that T7 might never become visible to the unaided eye. Alternatively, another comet, C/2002 Q4
(NEAT), may also reach naked eye visibility at nearly the same time, making 2004 April and May two of the busiest bright-comet months in centuries.
Kinda strange how this gets announced on the 9th of February 2004!
