Hale Bopp up close
November 26, 2013
it wasn't an image on paper or the internet that inspired me. It was the image of Hale-Bopp comet that I saw every evening as I took my walk, right above Cucamonga Peak. I would watch it get brighter and brighter with excitement. Then I would take my family to the dark skies of the desert and enjoy an even closer relationship with Hale-Bopp in my first telescope, an 8 inch Meade reflector. As a mother, it was a total joy to bring the universe up close and personal to my family.
