A rare sky treat

Across almost 73 laps around the Sun, I’ve seen six notable comets. The fifth was Hale-Bopp, which I blogged about here, along with details on the previous four, in 1997. The sixth is NEOWISE, and that’s it, above, shot with my iPhone 11. There are a couple other shots in that same album, taken with my Canon 5D Mark III. Those are sharper, but this one shows off better.

Hey, if the comet looks this good over the lights of Los Angeles, you might have a chance to see it wherever you are tonight. It’ll be under the Big Dipper in the western sky.

Every night it will be a bit dimmer and farther away, so catch it soon. Best view is starting about an hour after sunset.
