Comet Neowise

I’ve got many things I want to work on, but as it’s quite noisy where I live at the moment I’m having difficulty concentrating, so I thought I would share some pics of Comet Neowise I’ve found.

I love astronomy, so things like comets are of great interest to me, though I’m rather miffed that I couldn’t see it here since I live in the southern hemisphere, and sadly it could only be seen in the northern hemisphere. Neowise was first discovered in March 27, 2020. By July it became one of the brightest comets seen in the northern hemisphere since Hale-Bopp in 1997 with a magnitude of 3.5. This means it could be observed by the unaided eye, though people in urban areas might have needed binoculars.

 

Here are some photos of it I’ve come across on the web:
