Observer: W. Jay Gregory
Location: Richboro, Pennsylvania
Date: March 27, 1996 02:30 UT, 07:30 UT

The first photo was taken through a 200mm f3.9 telephoto lens on March 26 at 9:30 PM EST using Fuji 800 Super G Plus (un-hypered) from the light polluted skies of Richboro, PA with a bright partial phase moon. This was one bright comet! Exposure time was 4 minutes.

As for the second photo, using the same film at the same location, this photo of the comet was taken through a 50 mm f1.8 lens. The photo was taken about 5 hours later, after the moon had set. The tail on the photo stretches an amazing 30 degrees across the sky!
