A Bay Between Tails

C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp) - February 15, 1997
C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp) – February 15, 1997


This time I send again a sketch of the unforgetable great comet Hale-Bopp!
The observation was made the time before the fine spiral-bows appeared.
There was a bay of almost dark sky between the two tails.
C/ Hale-Bopp was the finest comet I have seen, and longlasting on the northern sky,
with many fine structures to observe in the inner coma.
I used color-crayons on black paper. Info on my sketch.
Location: Trondheim, Norway.

This year I celebrate 50 years as an amateur-astronomer (65 years old),
and have 330 sketches total!

Thank you for your comments and HAPPY NEW YEAR
from Per-Jonny Bremseth.
