Hale-Bopp over Siberia

March 7th, 1997

These images (50 mm f/1.8 on Fujichrome 400) show a public Hale-Bopp observing session that our eclipse expedition arranged for our hosts in the transbaikalian town of Chita (between Irkutsk and Vladivostok) on March 7th.

You can find the complete expedition report (with pictures of the eclipse itself; the comet was not seen clearly due to both light clouds and the simple fact that the sky never gets really dark during eclipses) at
