Date/Time of photo
Late April, 1996
This is a 10 minute exposure with a 50mm lens @ f/2.8 on Fuji Super G 800 plus.
After the show this comet put on the nights in late March when it sailed very close past Earth, Hyakutake appeared to fade but as it got closer to the sun it gave us a cool encore. This was the last time we saw it.
