        In the Shakespearian tragedy Julius Caesar, Calpurnia even predicts the murder, and the comet:

     When beggars die, there are no comets seen;
     The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.

       In Shakespeare’s play, Caesar was assassinated on the Ides of March, 44 B.C. The play mentions neither the games, nor that they were played in celebration of the new emperor, Augustus Caesar. A bright comet was visible in the northern sky during those games.   It was widely interpreted as Julius Caesar’s soul on its way to the stars.   At the time, comets were omens. Calpurnia was well aware that her husband’s death could be preceded or followed by a bright comet.   And decades later, Seneca, in his anxiety to avoid execution by the suspicious Emperor Nero, insisted that the bright comet of A.D. 61 was a favorable omen to Nero.   (It didn't work; Nero had Seneca put to death.)
