C/1995 O1 Hale - Bopp on March 8, 1997

This image is the sum of two images. Bright meteor was recorded on the first image (the short trace). This meteor I saw because I wasn't looking in the pointing eyepiece at that moment. The long line coming through the second image I was not able to identify. It may be a meteor again. I haven't seen neither passing satellite nor airplane.
