"Hyakutake III"
Comet Hyakutake
3/25 from Conifer, CO

5 minute time exposure -- 55mm f/2 on hypered Kodak Technical Pan film -- same as "Hyakutake I." Notice tail detachment event, which is quite rare on film. The event only took about 20 minutes, proving that one must actually look and give the comet a chance to "perform." Also, the tail has enlarged to almost 40 degrees long (the Moon is 1/2 a degree wide) and very bright, obvious to the most casual observer away from city lights.
