The Best Photos of Comet Neowise by Nature TTL Readers

Comet Neowise has spent July cruising past the earth at a comfortable 144,000 mph. Officially known as C/2020 F3, the comet has recruited a new generation of stargazers, and seen many amateur and professional photographers reaching for their tripods.

It won’t be seen again for another 6,800 years. So, to celebrate this once in a lifetime event, we’ve collected together some of the best photos of Neowise taken by the Nature TTL community.

Check out these fantastic astrophotos from our talented audience! And remember, if you want to learn more about astrophotography, make sure you download our eBook The Ultimate Guide to Astrophotography.
