Observer: Gary Holmes

Date: February 23, 1997 10:45 UT

Two more photos by Gary Holmes of Tuscaloosa, AL, taken about 1045 UT on 23 February - through a brief clearing in a cirrus sheet. These are very dark prints of moonstruck negatives. The two images are unfiltered on hypered 2415 film. The second image used a blue filter. Both are 60-second exposures. The white-light one shows both tails nicely, at about the same level.
