Answer: A comet

On November 30, 1835, a newborn Samuel Langhorne Clemens, later known as Mark Twain, entered the world. He was only two weeks late to witness the heavenly passage of Halley's comet (which had passed on Earth on November 1

6, 1835).

Despite the show's absence, Twain maintained an affinity for the comet and often joked that he came into the comet world with it and he would also disappear with it. In 1909 he wrote:

I came in 1835 with Halley's comet. It's coming back next year, and I expect it to go out. It will be the biggest disappointment of my life if I do not go out with Halley's comet. The Almighty has undoubtedly said, "Well, here are these two un-accountable freaks; they came together, they have to go out together. "

He lived a long life and died at the age of 74 of a heart attack on April 21, 1910 – on a single day after the light and spectacular passage of the comet through the earth.
