Observer: Bob Yen
Location: Mojave Desert, California
Date: April 26, 1997

1. 300mm lens, 20 deg x 24 deg FOV.

2. 610mm lens. Here is a very interesting image, showing how fan-like the ion tail has become, including kinks & wild striations. The explanation is the wild equatorial solar winds, scientists have been prediciting in coming days.
