The views from China and Vietnam

I went looking for the two Korean comet-apparitions of 1313 and 1668; both were seen in China and Vietnam as well.

It might be hard to find the 1313 comet in Europe. Another one passed o'er in 1315. That latter one (also seen in China) is associated with the great European famine. I suspect it drowned out notice of the 1313.

For 1668 China and Vietnam give us a lot more help. They concur with Lisbon and Brasil that the comet was impressive and first appeared in early March. The Korean record is, I think, too late; but since it's only late by, what, a fortnight this is still identifiable with the comet everyone else saw.
