Morehouse’s Comet 

Morehouse's Comet, or C/1908 R1, was discovered by Daniel Walter Morehouse and first observed on September 1, 1908.

Longfellow, H.W. Courtship of Miles Standish, Bridal procession 

Onward the bridal procession now moved to their new habitation, Happy husband and wife, and friends conversing together. Pleasantly murmured the brook, as they crossed the ford in the forest, Pleased with the image that passed, like a dream of love through its bosom, Tremulous, floating in air, o'er the depths of the azure abysses. …
