Halley's Comet 3D Screensaver shows a simple representation of Halley's comet trajectory. The screensaver displays the Earth rotating on its axis, lots of stars (some of them brighter than others), the moon rotating around the Earth, distant galaxies and nebulae of different colors. After a few seconds, the Halley's comet passes between the Earth and the moon with a bright light. This sequence is repeated over and over again. There are strange background sounds, which are not realistic, since in space there are no sounds whatsoever. Unfortunately, the screensaver doesn't include music, but if you want you can add your own from the settings menu.

From this menu, you will only be able to customize the music playlist and the exit conditions. The songs can be shuffled, repeated and you can also play a different random song every time the screensaver starts. It is a shame that you cannot select the size of the image or the video quality.

In short, if you are a fan of space, and especially of Halley's comet, Halley's Comet 3D Screensaver may work for you, but don't expect much from it.
