a spectacular comet that graced our skies in 1996 - 1997. It lead to lots of stupid New Age speculation due to the "prophecy" and angel-encounter end-of-the-millenium bullshit that was going on in near the end of the 20th century. There were cult suicides, and superstitious predictions that did not come true. It was very prominent in the sky in early to mid 1997. Dubbed the "Comet of the Century", Hale-Bopp was a thrill to see and a once in a lifetime event, although you can't tell when the next comet "biggie" may come our way.
Comet Hale-Bopp was discovered by the American astronomers Alan Hale and Thomas Bopp.
