In 1997, 39 people took their own lives to reach what they believed was an extraterrestrial spacecraft following Comet Hale–Bopp.
All of them were dressed in black, wearing Nike Decade sneakers, and killed themselves in shifts over three days, with members arranging the bodies of those who died before them.

WARNING: THE PHOTOBOOK ISN’T FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!
