This image of Periodic Comet Kowal-Vavrova was obtained on
1997 December 31 with Spacewatch. The image is 4.5
arcminutes square with north at the top and west on
the right. The comet is the stellar appearing image
near the center of the frame - the stars appear to be
trailed slightly due to having 3 images co-added after
accounting for the comets motion.
