Twain, Mark - Prophesies his own death
Type of Spiritual Experience
His prediction was accurate—Twain died of a heart attack on April 21, 1910, in Redding, Connecticut, one day after the comet's closest approach to Earth.
A description of the experience
Albert Bigelow Paine. "Mark Twain, a Biography"
In 1909, Twain said:
I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go out with Halley's Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: 'Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together'.
Twain was born shortly after a visit by Halley's Comet, and he died the day after the comet returned.
