Yesterday was a beautiful day with the sky an all covering Charentaise blue. We decided to look for the comet Neowise as darkness fell.
We localised the Big Dipper and there was the comet between the trees.
I have never taken photographs of comets or stars before so it was pretty hit or miss. You maybe just able to see the shadow of our trees at the edges of the photograph.
This photograph is thanks to Picassa, but actually closer to what the eye sees. The stars are showing as dashes as the world turns as I hold down my shutter release.
You should be able to see the comet for the next few days if you have clear skies.
