Comet NEOWISE in July of 2020

June 09, 2021


Photographer: Andrea Zappia
Summary Author: Andrea Zappia

Featured above is Comet NEOWISE as observed from Rocca la Meja,
Italy, on July 22, 2020. In order to capture this view I spent the
night at an altitude of 8,850 ft (approximately 2700 m), equipped with
photographic gear and a tent and a sleeping bag. The camera is facing
toward the north-northwest. This long period comet won’t appear
again until some 6000 years from now. Note NEOWISE’s double
tail and reflection off the lake's still waters.

Photo details: To photograph Neowise, I took a single shot with 15
seconds exposure at ISO 3200.

Rocca la Meja, Italy Coordinates: 44.416667, 7.333333
