96B2-251.JPG: This image of comet C/1996 B2 (Hyakutke) was taken on March 25, 1996, by Erich Kolmhofer and Herbert Raab near Linz, Austria, using a 225mm f/2.0 Schmidt Camera. It is a ten minute exposure (0:23 - 0:33 UT) on hypered TP 6415 film. The field shown here is about 6.6 degrees wide, and north is left. A prominent knot in the tail is visible at the center of the image. It appears somewhat smeared, as it moved about 5 arc minutes outwards from the comet's head during the exposure.
