Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3)

Comet NEOWISE C2020 F3

The comet NEOWISE at 5:16 am in the morning as seen from Isabela, Puerto Rico.

I was able to capture the comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) as morning dawned at 5:16 am this morning in Isabela, Puerto Rico.  It cannot yet be seen with the naked eye, but I was able to capture this with a Canon 70D, 135mm lens and 2 second exposure with an ISO of 800.  If you’ve never captured a comet before, now is your chance!

How can I find it?

From around 5 am in the morning you can begin to capture it as it rises above the North-East horizon. Look for the area between Venus and the star Capella to try and capture it on your camera!

Location of NEOWISE comet

This is the area of the sky to look for the comet just after 5 am. Look for Venus and the star Capella to guide you to the location of the comet. Take a photo of that area and the comet should show!

Hopefully, the comet will continue to brighten and it may well be able to be seen with the naked eye in the weeks ahead!
