Observers: Ron Baalke, Sue Kientz
Location: Angeles Crest Highway, California
Date: March 30, 1997 03:37, 04:32 UT

Images taken from the Angeles Crest Highway (Highway 2), about 10 miles north of Pasadena, California. First image is a 1 minute exposure, the second a 20 second exposure. Both images taken with a Canon A2 mounted on a tripod using a 100mm lens, unguided. Film was Fujicolor Super HG 1600.

An interesting side story: when I went into to the photo lab to pick up the prints, the photo lab guy pointed out that someone else was also picking up his comet photos at the same time. Turns out that other person was Bob Yen! We've never met before, but we've corresponded via email, and several of his excellent photos were already on this home page.
