As a teenager my interest in Astronomy grew to new levels. One of the exciting things happening in the night sky at that time was the return of Comet Halley in 1986.

I recall my Father and I in the backyard of the family home taking pictures of the Comet Halley using a film SLR camera, lens and fixed tripod. It was a memorable experience not only seeing this famous visitor from the depths of our solar system but also time spent with my Father that I remember fondly.

These are the photos of Comet Halley we were able to get!
