Living with CometsF Tsuruhiko Kiuchi—Nagano / Summer 1996
[back to Kiuchi home page]
Distance between Swift-Tuttle comet and Kiuchi (earth): approximately 1,843,000,000 km.
March 9, 1997 Kiuchi plans to view the total solar eclipse and Hale-Bopp comet at the same time in Mongolia.

"Next year, a total solar eclipse will be visible in Mongolia. At the same time, the Hale-Bopp comet will also be quite bright. It may be possible to view both at the same time. I'd really like to see that."
