D sounds right based on tense.

A seems to be preoccupied with halleys comet passing above the horizon.
B and C are garbage.
E does not seem parallel.

D for me. the phrase '...will do' in choice E does not read well. what will the comet do? pass some 25 degrees above the horizon...? anyway i think D is more idiomatic.

I will go with 'E' but I think there is a comparison error in all of the choices- comparing 'the comet Crommelin' to 'Halleyâ€™s comet'.
