Omar Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Khairul Nizam Omar
Location: Shah Alam, Malaysia
Date: April 14, 1997 00:25 UT

Due to Malaysia's rainy season and cloudy night sky plus hazy condition around the city area, the comet was hardly visible from the suburbs of the national capital, Kuala Lumpur even on a clear night. Notice the red light trail from a passenger airliner that zipped through the great comet. At the time this photo was taken, the comet was located very low above the northwest horizon which made observation difficult.
