Vanderhoff Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: Dewey Vanderhoff
Location: Cody, Wyoming
Date: March 25, 1997 03:30 UT

Here's another"change of pace" comet photo. Just happened to catch a nice little bolide meteor in the edge of the picture during the exposure. It shows a nice flare at the end.

DATA: 45 second exposure at f/2.8 on Micro-Nikkor 55mm lens; Fuji Super G 400 color negative. The mountain is Heart Mountain, a prominent and famous geologic landmark eight miles north of Cody, Wyoming near the Montana border . The photo was taken Monday night about 10:30 PM-MST. Hale Bopp is currently only below the north horizon for about two hours here in northern Wyoming during its circumpolar swing.
