Attached is a specatacular image of Comet Hyakutake showing it's long tail in relation to some silhouetted foreground trees. I shot it on the evening/morning of March 26/27 at 1:50 EST from the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in northwestern New Jersey.

The image was taken on Kodak Royal Gold 400 film, with a Nikon F2 with a 28mm f/2.8 lens set at maximum aperture for 120 seconds. Jim Barg
