Observers: Ron Baalke, Sue Kientz
Location: Pasadena, California
Date: April 10, 1997 03:52 UT

Image taken with a Canon A2 mounted on a tripod with a 100mm/f2.8 lens, unguided. Film used is Fujicolor Super HG 1600. 30 second exposure. The object in the foreground is a palm tree. This photo looks like it was taken in the daylight, but it was actually taken at night. The nearby street lights and general light pollution in Pasadena makes it look brighter than it really is.
