NOV 11, 1996 - NASA's Comet Hale-Bopp Home Page is a site not to be missed if you're looking for information on the comet of the same name, which is due to make its closest approach to Earth on March 22, 1997 and its closest approach to the sun ten days later on April 1. Here you'll find an ephemeris for the comet (in right ascension/declination only) for September 10, 1996 to January 18, 1998. Images abound on this site. As of November 10, 1996 I counted 136 static images (.GIFs and .JPEGs) and 10 animations (mostly MPEGs) - with more sure to follow. At an estimated 18-25 miles across, Hale-Bopp is larger than Hyakutake, larger even than Halley's, and bound to be a newsmaker in 1997. With lots of information in its own right, and links to plenty more, the NASA Comet Hale-Bopp Home Page is a good place to start getting a handle on this newest celestial visitor.
