Garcia Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Alfredo Garcia
Location: El Segundo, California
Date: March 3, 1997 13:30 UT

Image taken from the side yard of my house here in El Segundo at about 0530 on 3 Mar 97. I used American (3M) ASA 400 Color Print Film with a 50mm f/2.8 lens on an OM88 Olympus Camera. The exposure time was about 2 sec and I was really surprised I could see the tail despite not only the light pollution from Los Angeles, but also dawn!!
