Very sketchy memory of comet Hale-Bopp in 1997

This is a wonderful memory from an experience I had with my brothers and neighbors when was 7 in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, back in April 1997. I've been meaning to sketch it this week and for a while actually. It's not exact but this is what I remember most. The comet was visible for about 4 days and it changed from a pinkish color to a blue gray as it passed the horizon. This was viewd from my neighbir's balcony that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean.

I knew it was in 1997 so I did some research this week to find out which comet passed by that year and it was Hale- Bopp. It happened around April 14th or so.
