Comet Hyakutake on 13.3.96

Comet Hyakutake. Comet Hyakutake (at lower right), showing the comet's bright head (coma) and long tail. Comet Hyakutake or 1996 B2 was one of the brightest comets to appear in the sky this century. Comets are mostly formed of water ice and dust. They usually have a diameter of a few kilometres and orbit the Sun with highly elongated orbits. It is only when a comet approaches the Sun that the water ice vaporises to form a tail of gas and dust. This always points away from the Sun because it is blown by charged particles (the solar wind) which come out of the star. The image was taken on 13 March 1996; the brightest star (at upper centre) is Algol (Beta Persei)

Optical CCD image of Comet DeVico

Comet DeVico. Optical CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image of Comet DeVico. The bright part (at centre left) is the nucleus of the comet whilst the tail stretches to far right. A comet is a ball of ice and dust on an elliptical orbit around the Sun. As it approaches the Sun its surface evapor- ates, releasing a tail of dust and vapour that can reach millions of kilometres in length. The tail always extends away from the Sun, whatever direct- ion the comet is travelling. This is because the dust is swept along by the solar wind, the stream of charged particles coming from the Sun. Photographed in November 1995 with a 35cm tele- scope at the OCA observatory in California, USA
