Comet C/1999 S4 LINEAR

Date:  Saturday, July 22nd, 2000
Time:  9:30 PM
Location:  Mataquay Scout Reservation, Warner Springs, CA. 

50mm lens at f2.8, 400 Kodak Royal Gold, 4 minute exposure, guided.

The skies were beginning to fill with clouds as the night went on.  Soon, the marine layer would completely cover the comet.  We were lucky to get this image of LINEAR.
