Eiers Drawing of Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake


Observer: Joe Eiers
Location: Sly Park, California
Date: March 23, 1996 20:30 UT

My "artist's conception" from sketch on March 23, 1996, 12:30 am. Naked eye view from Sly Park, Ca. - naked eye limiting Magnitude= 6.0. Tail extended past 30 degrees w/o averted vision. Much detail visible through most of the tail. Stunning!! (Image viewing tip: turn the brightness of your monitor so that the trees at the bottom just become visible.)
