This is a
picture of the Hale-Bopp comet which was prominent in the night
sky in the spring of 1997. As you can see from the sign the photo
was taken along Ranch Road 1323. It is a few miles east of Sandy,
about 10 miles northwest of Johnson City. The picture was taken
about 10:30 p.m. on April 22 with a 30-45 second exposure. As
it happened, there was a full moon rising behind me and this
illuminated the landscape.
