try

my opinion:
the first time that sight has appeared in 122 years.=
it is the first time that sight has appeared in 122 years.
here " in 122 years" means "since it happened 122 yeas ago "

Relax! Just a short sentence!

the first time that sight has appeared in 122 years
it's the first time the sight has appeared in (recent) 122 years.
在122年里第一次出现。那不就是意味着122年后才出现吗?
