Born with Brightest Comet of 20th Century

I’ve always wanted to see a bright comet, and just found out there was the brightest one of the twentieth century happening in the east when I was born; and one of the brightest of the millennium. Moreover, a painting accompanying it on the first site I went to, space.com, after Wikipedia, shows comet Ikeya-Seki with the sun in a POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sky – a new pop art I proposed during the greenYgrey trilogy.

Moreover, it broke up into three pieces as it approached the sun, kind of like greenYgrey’s Y towards the end of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, in a literature-history-making, as far as I know, examination of a letter as a literary character; perhaps like splitting the atom in physics!:

While it’s an interesting ‘coincidence’ for me, there were a lot of people born at the same time, and a lot closer to it, as well as those who were alive to see it, and discovered it first (Kaoru Ikeya and Tsutomu Seki).

On the Comet Watch brightest comets since 1900 list, Ikeya-Seki scored -10 in brightness, three points higher than the second, and ten times higher than the much precedented Hale-Bopp in 1995 (-0.8); the one I remember most, but that unfortunately disappointed.
