Henri Boffin – The Attic

Observing at airmass 4

The ESO staff at La Silla went to extraordinary lengths to observe Comet Bradfield when it appeared near the eastern horizon on March 8, 1978. The above drawing, by Karen Humby (Mrs. Saxby since May 13, 1978), is based on reports of reliable eyewitnesses, but does not necessarily express the official opinion of the Organization.
