An image of Comet Hyakutake taken on the night of March 14 (~0515hUT) with a 4" f/5 Tele-Vue Genesis refractor for 8 minutes using Kodak Royal Gold 1000 print film.

Its probably not really green, but rather an artifact caused by the "1 Hour Photo" developer. A negative b/w image is also here. On the original print (which is larger than the field shown above), the tail extends for about 3 degrees. This image was taken at Maktomkus Observatory, Avonport, Nova Scotia
