Platt Images of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Terry Platt
Location: United Kingdom
Date: March 21-22, 1997 UT

Color images taken with a Starlight Xpress single-shot color camera and 318mm reflector. This sequence of images shows clear evidence for rotation of the nucleus in about 11 hours and demonstrates how the infamous 'hoods' form. The details are on the image.
