Hutchinson Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Bill Hutchinson
Location: Ninilchik, Alaska
Date: March 30, 1997 UT

Another shot of the Orthodox Church in Ninilchik, Alaska. It is Easter morning, a candle shines in the window, the aurora borealis is creating a halo around the church, Hale-Bopp shines overhead and Andromeda nearly touches the center cross. I don't know if I'll ever capture more in a single photograph. Nikon N90 20mm at f2.0, 30 second exposure on Fuji 400HG.
