Comets, storms, quakes and lightning were seen by many as signs or omens and caused fear and panic to spread through some communities in Texas. For centuries, people believed that a comet came as a harbinger of disaster, and in Bejar (now the area known as San Antonio), Halley's Comet was visible for months and faded just before the siege of the Alamo in 1836.
