How do astromomers calculate how far away Hale-Bopp is and how big it is?
I am doing a report on Hale-Bopp and how math is used in the research
of Hale-Bopp. I would like to know how they calculate it's distance from
us and it's size. I would also like to know how they figure out when it
will appear again. Thank you.
