|Comet Bennett was discovered in the south in 1969. It moved northward and
brightened in 1970. On one March morning, I woke up to find the sky overcast.
Wondering if it was possible to observe that morning, I looked up. There
were no stars visible but Comet Bennett was shining strongly through clouds.
Its magnitude was 0 to minus 1 and seen near the zenith. It was one of
the few bright comets in recent years. This photo was taken on April 1,
1970, in daylight by a 35mm camera with a 10-second exposure without tracking.
