Comet Hale Bopp over Nevada

By: Sean Sabatini


Mt. Charleston, Nevada, USA

1997 April 17


From the photographer: "Comet Hale-Bopp appears over Mt. Charleston in the state of Nevada, USA. Moonlight illuminates the snow-capped peak that towers more than 3,000 meters over the surrounding desert. This view closely approximates the appearance of the comet to the naked eye at the time." - Sean Sabatini (digital scan from film done by Tony Hallas).
