Gallery: Comet passing close to earth can be seen from Estonia

Here are the most stunning photos and videos of Comet Neowise so far.

Odisha planetarium's Deputy Director, Dr Subhendu Pattnaik told ANI, "From July 14, C/2020 F3, a comet discovered on March 27, will be clearly visible in the north-western sky".

And the best may be yet to come.

Keep the shutter speed as low as possible to get the shot of the comet.

"I fought off mosquitoes as I waited for the never-ending dusk to show me what was in the sky".

And over the last month, NEOWISE has become visible in the predawn skies, primarily at higher latitudes than here in Southern Louisiana. You don't have to wake up early to catch this celestial sight!

"Once the comet gets to close enough to Mars, the solar influence begins to heat up the surface of the comet, it begins to brighten, to glow". For instance, Neowise has been confirmed to be brighter than P/2011 (PANSTARRS), but not as bright as Comet Hale-Bopp. It's odd to think that the fantastic doubleheader of Hale-Bopp and Hyakutake arrived right before the era of film gave way to digital astrophotography.

Now everyone in the northern hemisphere can see it. "We had Comet Atlas and Comet Swan that looked very promising earlier this year and they just disintegrated", Boyle said.

The comet Neowise is capturing people's imagination as it is one of the more visible comets in recent memory.

A comets dust tail can be 10 million miles long.

"Everyone knows what the big dipper looks like in the northern sky... so over the next week or so, it will be moving under the big dipper", he explained. "I think that's great that we can witness its long voyage". Mathew Browne has a photo-tutorial on PetaPixel on how to shoot the comet with your tripod-mounted DSLR and get awesome results.

"If it's nice and clear, you should be able to see the comet with no optical aid whatsoever, with just your eyes alone". Will it remain bright? Comets are frozen balls of dust and gas that orbit the sun. Comets like NEOWISE are leftovers from the creation of our solar system.
