Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) has been one of the brightest comets in the night sky since comet Hale-Bopp in 1997. In the northern hemisphere, NEOWISE can be spotted under the constellation Ursa Major (The Big Dipper) and identified by its signature tail which appears as a cone of light in the sky.
As a long period comet, NEOWISE will only appear this close to earth once every 6700 years or so. It will be still be visible through August 2020 and then will disappear.
Fortunately, photographers around the world have created some beautiful and amazing images to remember this celestial object.
Jean-Luc M. photographed NEOWISE from the garden and over this World War I Memorial to the 11th Division statue in Léomont, France.
Photographer JCJ photographed NEOWISE over Troyes, France.
From the United States
In Illinois, Sugata captured a dreamy view over Lake Forest College.
Professional photographers Don Smith and Gary Hart have incorporated NEOWISE into some stunning landscape photography around California including a view towards Mount Umunum in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and rising up over the highly photogenic El Capitain rock formation in Yosemite National Park.
