Location, Date and Time - Near Wrightwood, CA; 9 April 1997, ~ 01:45 UT.
Other Information - Taken during bright twilight. Wide-angle field includes Comet Hale-Bopp, Perseus, Double Cluster, Pleiades, Hyades, and a young moon.

Mercury was also in the field of view of this image, but it had already set behind the large tree left of bottom center.
