Sunday Scribblings--Hale-Bopp


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!

thanks you for sharing that with me through the comment you made on my blog... i think i will probably find myself thinking about those drops of water a lot. it does make you think... even those comments we hear that we pretend somehow not to listen to, can sometimes be the thing that replays in your head over and over while trying to fall asleep. thanks for sharing this and for coming to my blog.
