Comet Hale-Bopp was photographed in dark twilight over a field of fireflies west of Pensacola. This shot gives some perspective regarding how the comet looked as a naked-eye object--quite impressive! Casseiopeia is visible just to the right of the comet as a "W" that has been set on its side with its arms extended to the right.
