Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE)

Les Touches-de-PĂ©rigny
Canon G7X
1/8s F2,8 ISO 3200

Comet Neowise has now moved far enough north to be visible both in the evening and morning skies, indeed from the UK it is now circumpolar although going through lower transit at very low altitude. This is a view taken in SW France in fairly strong twilight - the comet was rather faint but is visible to the left of the tree. It is still definitely more prominent in the morning sky.
