Idiom : Same - As

In its most recent approach, the comet Crommelin passed the Earth at about the same distance and in about the same position, some 25 degrees above the horizon, that Halley’s comet will pass the next time it appears.

(A) that Halley’s comet will pass
(B) that Halley’s comet is to be passing
(C) as Halley’s comet - Compares passing of Crommelin with the comet Halleys
(D) as will Halley’s comet - correct
(E) as Halley’s comet will do - Error of ellipses! "do" implies "passed" as mentioned in original sentence but should imply "pass" as in "will pass"

there are 3 patterns
the same noun+as+noun 2
the same noun +that clause (relative clause)
the same noun +as+clause (the compatative element is elliptical)
