Vanderhoff Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


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

Here's a view of three photographers and a computer guy caught in the act of image-napping Hale-Bopp. Taken Monday night 3/24 a few miles north of Cody WY , using a Nikkor 24mm lens at f/2.8 (wide open) for 45 seconds on Fuji Super-G 400 color print film. We are standing on the bank of a large irrigation canal...our shadows are projected on the opposite bank ( very nice geometry, eh? ) by the Moon one night past full. That's Heart Mountain in the background, a renowned geologic landmark in northern Wyoming.
