Comet with naked eye coma Ikeya-Zhang - 4.4.2002 at 22.00 Tampere Observation number 86501

Visibility IV / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I scanned old slides (became quite valuable after all sorts of funny expenses, such as an 8 giga memory stick for 15 euros).
Well history recovered.

"Here I would be 'most representative' of the first comet pictures I took. Photographed on the ice of Lake Näsijärvi in Tampere.

Next to the comet's head is the M31 galaxy.
