Comet Neowise was only discovered in March this year and has been putting on a spectacular show in the northern hemisphere.
We here in the southern hemisphere only had a brief chance for a few days to see the comet as it headed back out through the Solar System.
The only trouble was, the comet was very low in the western sky and could only be seen in twilight with moonlight from a nine-day-old Moon…so all in all, I’m amazed I even captured it near the cluster of stars (Mel 111) in Coma Berenices.
I’m so happy that people in the northern hemisphere were able to experience this wonderful comet, the last one we had here in Australia that put on an amazing show was Comet McNaught in 2007, which was just fantastic!!!
I wrote an Astroblog reminiscing it when Comet ISON was in our skies at:
