Observer: Gregg Geist
Location: Llano, Texas
Date: March 28, 1997

1. Photograph of Comet and reflection at a stock tank at a friend's ranch south of Llano, Texas on the evening of March 28, 1997. The Andromeda Galaxy is visible just above the trees directly below the head of the Comet. Seeing this fulfilled my life-long dream of seeing a comet's tail reflected in Water begun when I saw the picture of de Cheseaux's Comet of 1744 as a child. (Tripod mounted 50mm f/2 for 50 seconds on PJM 640 Multi-Speed Ektapress at 640 ASA)

2. Photograph of the Comet from a friend's ranch south of Llano, Texas on the evening of March 28, 1997, about 20 minutes after the previous photo. The Andromeda Galaxy is still visible peeking above the trees directly below the head of the Comet. (Tripod mounted 50mm f/2 for 50 seconds on PJM 640 Multi-Speed Ektapress at 640 ASA)
