Chester Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Geoff Chester
Location: Alexandria, Virginia
Date: Late April 1997

Image taken late April to use up some film. I never expected much, but instead I got a picture of what this thing looked like from the city...and it *still* looks like a comet!! It was taken from the street at the end of my driveway in Alexandria, VA around the time of the Full Moon, and is a 10 second exposure on Kodak PPF-400 color negative film.
