Simon Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Geoff Simon
Location: Pierre, South Dakota
Date: April 3, 1997 04:00 UT

This was taken April 2 at 10pm CST in Pierre, South Dakota. The foreground image shows cottonwood trees on the east bank of the Missouri River. The trees were tinted golden yellow by the sodium vapor lights in the parking lot of a nearby motel. A riverfront home is barely visible through the trees. This photo was taken on Kodak 400 Gold film, 30 second exposure at f 2.8.
