IRTF Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Bill Keel
Location: NASA Infrared Telescope Facility, Mauna Kea Observatory, Hawaii
Date: April 28, 1997 05:02 UT

Another 2.25-micron IRTF image of the innermost 75" of the comet, taken on April 28 at 0502 UT. Logarithmic scaling to compress the large brightness range. The IRTF is doing another daylight campaign of Hale-Bopp observations this week (after a major one in early April).
