Beers Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Allen Beers
Location: Baxter, Iowa
Date: March 15, 1997

The photographer was L. Allen Beers, a member of the Des Moines Astronoimcal Society. He has been doing astrophotography for nearly two decades and has achieved a sense of art with the camera and dark Iowa skies. Allen loves to take aurora pictures, but when a comet comes along, he is truly inspired.

Taken on Fugi SG800 film with a 58mm f/1.2 at 20 seconds, the shot was recorded in the early evening (exact time unknown) on March 15, 1997.
