I took a photo of Hale-Bopp rising over Union City, New Jersey March 12, 4 AM. I am near New York City...a very light pulluted area. I think the photo represents how visible the comet (with tail) is, even to an urban observer.
1000 ASA Kodak Royal Gold Film, Pentax k-1000 camera, 50 mm f/2.0 lens, 10 sec exposure (unguided), scanned at 200 DPI, processed with PHOTOFINISH software.
