Last night was nice and clear, so I grabbed my gear and drove about ten minutes west of town, hoping to catch Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE).
It was about 10:30 when I got to my spot, and the sunset was still too bright to see the comet. I noticed Jupiter on the other side of the sky, so I snapped a couple shots of it first. I’m not 100% sure, but I think I got all four Galilean moons in the shot, too.
Then the sun set enough, and I swung back around to face northwest.
As I was getting ready to pack up, I noticed a haziness to the northeastern sky. I knew thanks to SpaceWeather.com that a coronal mass ejection had just arrived, triggering some aurora. So I put my widest lens on my camera and snapped a few more shots.
All in all, a good night. I even got to wave at the International Space Station as it went by.
Interested in prints of my photos? Let me know, and we can work something out.
