Stacked images obtained from two series of short (3-9 sec) exposures taken with an ST-6 CCD camera at the 25 cm, f/16 refractor of the Hainberg Observatory at Goettingen, Germany. The exposures combined to the first image have been taken between 19:24 and 19:40 UT on the evening of April 2, 1997. The image is shown with a logarithmic intensity scale. The second image is a contrast enhanced version obtained by applying an adaptive Laplace filter to the first image.
