"Comets and Quakes"

Take a look at some of the natural phenomena Texas settlers may have witnessed or heard about, and how they might have reacted. 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.
