SE cannot handle non-periodic events, so we probably won't see this kind of things any time soon, but it sure would be nice :)

Oh this means it can't do Great Comets either, can it?

You mean hyperbolic comets (Halley's comet is a great comet and has a period)? If so, OK, I don't actually know what type of motion SE handles, but my understanding is that SE can't handle anything as complex what the video shows. I'll gladly be wrong though.
