The "Great Comet of 1744" caused much excitement wherever it was viewable. Many artists created illustrations depicting it.

In this illustration, we see the work of Johann Georg Puschner (1680-1749). He called his work:

Der Große Komet von 1744 über Nürnberg

In English, that means:

The Great Comet of 1744 over Nuremberg.
