There have been some close approaches of comets to Earth in recent history, but it's been since 1770 that one was in sky so close it was clearly discernible as a comet to the naked eye.
Now comets come in all flavors of appearance, the one of the show looked like some in the real ones in the photo catalogs... except for being red. Comets can have shades of red in them.
Still hey, what is quasi-fantasy for but to push the envelope!
And this is a dragon symbol.
Comet looked fine.
Hale Bop in 1997 was visible by the naked eye and I believe Halleys comet is even brighter, don't remember seeing that one myself though I think it was last visible in the early 80s sometime...
