Comet NEOWISE, north from Whitchester
Comet NEOWISE, north from Whitchester
Seen against the fixed stars of the northern sky, the broad dust tail of the comet (C/2020 F3) streaks away from the sun. In dark skies the comet is visible to the naked eye and can be found directly below the constellation of the Big Dipper (or Plough) on a line drawn down from the stars Delta and Beta in the 'pan'. The brighter two stars of the little triangle framing the comet are Kappa and Iota in the same constellation (Ursa Major) NZ1068 : Comet NEOWISE, north from Whitchester.

The photo was taken on Sunday 19th July 2020 just before midnight.
