Make a wish babe because this falling star is all you need to make some dreams come true. (Next is that instant beach bod and some hunk to make frozen margaritas for you)

Halley's Comet was originally sighted and recorded as early as 240 BC (say whaaaaat?!) but was officially recognized as the same comet in 1704 by a dude named Edmond Halley (we don't get a lot of stars in New York City; we don't know nuthin' bout that).

While this comet may just seem like a nice occasion to camp out with your latest crush and get a romantic make out sesh in, back in the day the sighting of a falling star of this magnitude would cause some serious panic. Ancient peoples all over the globe would blame good ol' Halley for famine, death, plague and there were even records of virgins being sacrificed on sight of this beautiful falling star (damn, thats a bummer).   

Well, times have changed (you're welcome, virgins) and now you can wear this golden sparkly star as a celebration of how bright you shine
