a spectacular comet that came close to the Earth in early 1996. It was a total surprise for the public so the end-of-the-millenium doomsayers and New Age crackpots couldn't bombard us with their superstitious bullshit. It was visible to the unaided eye and was "something to talk about" in the office and computer lab. It sported an unusually long tail. A thrill. Mere months after the comet's appearance, Comet Hale-Bopp graced our skies.
Comet Hyakutake was discovered by the Japanese astronomer Yuji Hyakutake. The brilliance of the comet made Yuji a celebrity, particularly in Japan.
