Description

In 1996 the comet Hyakutake (1996 B2) was the great surprise at the sky in spring.
He developed an incredible tail at the end of March and was unfortunately difficult to observe from Central Europe because it was cloudy at that time. In the night from 26 to 27 March I was able to photograph him after midnight. He stood close to the Polar Star and his tail ran through Ursa Major.
The photo was taken with a Pentacon lens 2.8/29 from 1:23 am UT to 1:35 am UT.
