Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3)
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!
Hopefully, the comet will continue to brighten and it may well be able to be seen with the naked eye in the weeks ahead!
My name is David Hamilton and I’m from Northern Ireland but currently living in Puerto Rico. I have a degree in Biochemistry and a M.Phil in molecular virology from Queen’s University Belfast. I write on some of my interests which range from virology, astronomy and science related subjects to history. Thanks for your interest!
