ASTRONOMY CLUB ....

Comet Hale Bopp continued


The photograph you can view (below) was taken by Bob Thompson on Apr. 3rd using 1600 film and a 150 mm lens then printed as a slide and scanned. The Field of View is 9.2 x 13.6 degrees. Notice that the ion tail is just starting to divide into several sections which became more evident several nights later.

( Apr. 9). Thank you, Bob, for the many images you have provided our viewers!
