(A) "that" is incorrect... refers to ? the horizon, the positon, etc...
(B) complete mess... "is to be passing" is incorrect
(C) "as Halley’s comet" unfinished thought... needs a verb for ||sm
(D) "as will Halley’s comet" meaning it will pass, but not at the same degrees or positon...
(E) "as Halley’s comet will do" is || and clearly shows that the comet's characteristics will be the same as those of Crommelin comet.

my choice is E

Using ellipsis is better than using "do" as a replacement of verb.

Thats why D is better.
