Additional comet pictures (this is a miscellaneous collection; except for the Hale-Bopp ones available directly from this page, only kohoutek.jpg (taken from Trinity College, Cambridge; the comet is the faint streak to the right of the much brighter Venus and Jupiter), and hyakutake.jpg, are my own photos).
