Comet Hale-Bopp.

Image of the comet Hale Bopp that has been enhanced to show these faintest parts better. The frames on which this photo is based were obtained during three nights (February 27-March 2, 2001). As the comet moved in the meantime, there are several images of each star in the field — they appear multi-coloured, according to the optical filters that were used.
