Hale - Bopp was the big thing back in the late 90's. Here is poop on it. Let me know if this is the one your thinking about...My wife was just talking about this yesterday at the eye doctors & how it was a shame that we weren't able to see it because all of the cloud cover here in PA.
Thanks for posting.
Now Isaac you will no doubt know the answer to something. Back in 199?-200? we were still racing & had to leave to get to the track at about 3 AM. There was a Comet that was visble (Not Halley's) for probably a month or so. Can't remember the name. Do you know what it was? That came up yesterday as well & I just can't remember the name.
