No, its not mentioned. A star is mentioned. Comet's dont usually stop in mid flight. Verse Nine.

Matt. 2:1-10.
1, Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
3, When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
4, And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
5, And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
6, And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
7, Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
8, And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
9, When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
10, When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.


Galatians 4: 16, Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

I could not find the word "comet" in the bible. (BibleGateway.com)
Comets may have been included under "signs and wonders".
As for Halley's comet, I don't think it was named until 1705 AD.
