Comet NEOWISE c/2020 F3, as it moved past the Big Dipper,
This is probably my last good shot, now that its dimmer and into the Twilight glow.. I was pleasantly surprised to see all the little galaxies in the background with just a 47mm lens. Thousands of Stars in this one! The Comet’s Closest approach to Earth was today.
Also the blue gas ion tail is really long, stretching almost to the handle of the Big Dipper, the dust tail spreads almost into the bowl. I grab these shots right after dark, just as the comet was reaching the horizon haze. This deep shot shows the fainter details of the Comet and tails.
