Hale-Bopp from Tim Forrest. North Carolina. April 29, 1997.
I love comets. I want a repeat of Hale-Bopp that was so spectacular I could see it through my kitchen window while eating breakfast before school. Alas, Comet 17p/Holmes, as interesting as it is as a celestial phenomena, looks like a bust for my viewing pleasure. I spent a half hour shivering on my porch looking for it tonight (naked eye and my trusty 7 X 35 binoculars). I know where I'm supposed to see it, but everything looks like a fuzzy star in the Perseus constellation to me.
