B IMO, the 'it' refers to the comet. The rest of the choices seem to refer to the astronomers, which is incorrect. OA please?

Choices other than B are definately wrong.
In B, is "it" correctly referring to "the comet"?

You wouldn't refer to a group of people (astronomers) as 'it'. You would use 'they', 'them', etc.
