I'm seem to remember that Kohoutek wasn't as bright as predicted, so few people saw it..

Comet Hale-Boop (which was visible in 1996-1997) was much more spectacular. You could even see it through the smog of Houston's skies.

Some cult in San Diego committed mass suicide as the comet passed, believing that they were going to become passengers in a space ship trailing the tail of the comet.
