Neowise comet

Just recently discovered. Not coming around again for 6800 years... (who figures this stuff out? And who can do the fact checking?)
Was looking the other night. Finally pulled out the binocs, which you will need to see it. Still pretty cool to see.

I've got too much light pollution and a poor horizon in that direction. Glad you could catch it.

Do have some photos from comet Halley back in '86.

I really like that elapsed shot with the plane.

This guy is pretty good too. Worth a follow. As is our member saltyric.
