First image shows C/1996 B2 passing through Bootes on the 24th of March. The back side of a storm front brought clear, cold air which made for great observations.

Second image was taken with 105 mm lens at f/ 2.8 70 sec. exposure on 1600 speed film North is to the left of the photo. Computer generated false color and contrast provided a means to examine light intensity around the head of the comet.
