NEOWISE the comet not to be seen again in 6800 years

Observers in the Northern Hemisphere are hoping to catch a glimpse of Comet NEOWISE as it zips through the inner solar system before it speeds away into the depths of space. Discovered on March 27, 2020 by NASA’s Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) mission, Comet NEOWISE is putting on a dazzling display for skywatchers before it disappears, not to be seen again for another 6,800 years. - NASA
The ‘fuzzy’ star

Just after sunset the NEOWISE appears just below the Big Dipper in the Northwest sky.

NEOWISE was reported seen on July 15 and continue to be visible till July 23, 2020.

All these photos were captured with a Nikon D850 with several focal lengths from a 24-70 mm lens. The exposure varied from 18 to 30 seconds and almost all at f/2.8. The second lens was a Tamron 70-200 mm lens with similar configurations.

Just an aircraft passing. And a shooting star on the right.

According to NASA, each night the comet will continue rising increasingly higher above the northwestern horizon.

There are some activities on the left going down

Here is an interesting shot. I don’t know what the other one is. Anyone? I am calling this ‘Gurudeva’ if it does not have a name.

There are so many details at NASA’s website on Comet NEOWISE here.
