“It’s like a comet fair” – said one of the astrophotographers while sharing their work with us. July 2020 was the best month when it comes to Astronomy. We had a penumbral lunar eclipse, the closest approach of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. There is a spectacular double meteor shower that will take place around the end of the month. But the icing on the cake was the recently discovered comet, NEOWISE.
In this article, we are sharing some of the best pictures of the comet. The names of the astrophotographers are also mentioned. You can visit their accounts to relish more of their stellar work!
