This photo of the Hale-Bopp comet passing in front of the Andromeda Galaxy was taken in March, 1997. We went out to the dark shore of the Great Salt Lake with our binoculars to view it, but it wasn't this good! There was a rock concert happening that night at Saltaire, and our dim view was accompanied by a loud thump of drums and guitars, and a raw smell of brine shrimp. This great picture offers another chance with a better view!
