Was very fortunate to capture comet NeoWise and the Noctilucent clouds simultaneously.
Cloudy skies for much of July obscured the comet for all but a few nights...even on this night, the comet danced with incoming cloud cover.

Please view against a dark background by clicking on the image.

A must to view large. Truly comes to life. This evokes lots of pleasant feelings John, with dusk, stars and the coming night sky all gelling well. The comet a very nice addition.
Make your life spectacular!

The layered cloud patterns are complex and interesting - love the way the comet shines through.

Clicking on the image so that it is against a dark background really makes the comet pop. Cool shot!

The dark surround really brings this to life, John! Lucky you - we just had cloud, cloud and more cloud when the comet was passing over us.
