Too bad that Hale-Bopp has gone. Comet Hale-Bopp was without any doubt a 'Great Comet', the Great Comet of the year 1997! Maybe also the Comet of the Century.
The photography shows Hale-Bopp at the evening sky, seen from Pik Terskol
Observatory in the northern Caucasus (Russia, Kabardino-Balkaria). The
comet was visible just above the Elbrus, which is with 5642m altidude the
highest mountain of the Caucasus. The snowy landscape was illuminated by
the waxing moon.
