In the work "Théorie du mouvement des comètes" ("Theory on the Movement of Comets" 1760) Clairaut predicted the date that Halley's comet would be at perihelion, the point it would be nearest the sun, was April 13, 1759. The actual date was March 13, just within the allowed-for margins of error. There was a suggestion that Halley's Comet be renamed for Clairaut and he was hailed as the "new Thales.
