An interesting theory about the prevalence of the swastika symbol throughout many cultures is that a comet, perhaps Encke?, with 4 active streamers and so positioned that it would be viewed looking down the axis of rotation, would form such a shape in the sky. I altered a photo in PS of an image I captured of Comet Panstaars at Arkabutla Lake in MS back in 2013 to resemble an imaginary "Encke of the Past."
