Hale Bopp in conjonction with a star during day time, March 29th
Comet Hale Bopp becoming now one of the most interesting comet of the
century, we decided at "Station de Planitologie des Pyrinies" to make
an unprecedent observational effort, though the small team size !
Fortunatly the weather is also with us, as we observed during 51 nights
(and some time days!) from February 1st to now. This image is one on
the current day time observations, the trail of the star SAO 37166 is
visible on the top. The image was taken on March 29th, at 10h 25m UT.
