Pfeiffer Image of Comet Hale-Bopp

50mm, f2, about 90 seconds, Fuji Super HG 400. On the horizon you can see lights from the opposite shore of lake Erie. The lake is about 50 miles across here. The lights are visible due to an inversion over the lake. There is cool air at the surface with a warm layer above. This inversion layer acts as a reflector making it possible to see the opposite shore.
