Observer: Dave Schmahl
Location: Fallbrook, Northwest San Diego County, California
Date: April 30, 1997 03:00 UT

50mm lens at f1.7, 1000 Kodak Gold, 20 sec exposure, unguided.

1. On a rather cloudy evening, the Pleiades (hiding in the clouds), the Hyades, and the comet form a nice triangle.

2. During evening twilight, the comet peaked out of the clouds long enough for a portrait.
