Comet NEOWISE

You may have heard about comet Neowise that has been visible in the skies above Ireland recently. Comet C2020 F3 NEOWISE was discovered by the NEOWISE spacecraft on 27th March 2020.  It made it’s closest approach to the Sun on 3rd of July 2020 and since emerging from the encounter with the Sun, has become one of the brightest comets seen in recent years.

I took these images between 1am and 2.30am, on the Morning of 10 July 2020. near Kingscourt in Co. Cavan, Ireland. If you fancy having a look for the comet. You can see it after midnight in the North.
