Observer: Jon Rubin
Location: Aso, Kyushu, Japan
Date: March 24, 1997 20:00 JST

Both images taken at about 8pm Japan Standard Time. The film was Fujicolor 400ASA with an exposure of about 20 seconds. They were taken in the town of Aso, which is appr oximately in the center of Kyushu. Aso is at the base of an active volcano of the same name. Th e first photo shows the comet just above the roof of a rural Japanese house. The second photo shows the comet above a field (possibly a rice field) which was just to the left of the house.
