The city of Bayeux, in Normandy, in France, has a beautiful website called The 3 Museums. One of the museums is the tapestry, and this is freely available:

Since the Bayeux Tapestry’s rediscovery in the 18th century, scholars have painstakingly cataloged the 224-foot-long embroidered cloth’s contents. Today, they know that the medieval masterpiece features 626 humans, 37 buildings (including the Mont-Saint-Michel monastery), 41 ships, and 202 horses and mules, among many other objects.

Haley's Comet appeared in 1066, and is shown on the Bayeux Tapestry, an embroidered pictorial account of the Norman Conquest of England.
