Comet over the basilica

8. July 2020
Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE is getting brighter and brighter each day. In fact, it’s magnitude isn’t increasing, but its location in the sky is changing and it cause it’s more contrast compared to the background. From middle Europe, in the next days, the comet will become a circumpolar object. It means, that we would see NEOWISE all night long. From North-West at the beginning of the day to the North-East before the dawn.
Do You even see the noctilucent clouds on the photo? While the ordinary clouds occur in the troposphere at altitudes up to 11km, these “night ones” appear in altitude about 85 km in the mesosphere.
