Beams Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Anatole Beams
Location: Akaslompolo, Lapland, Finland
Date: March 13, 1997 21:30

This is the comet in the Arctic sky in Akaslompolo, Lapland. 13/3/97 9.30pm Kodak Gold 400 1 minute exposure. Astrophotography at this latitude becomes much more difficult because of the competing Aurora Borealis randomly crossing the sky and the temperatures which dropped as low as - 30 C.
