BBC Sky at Night Magazine

Saturday surprise


While going through the normal nightly routine, I decided to have one last look at the night sky. It was a clear night, not much happening: the Plough looked its usual self; a few other stars were shining. Then my eyes were drawn to what appeared to be a smudge in the distance. Could it be? Time for the binoculars, and what a nice surprise. Yes, Comet NEOWISE had made its appearance over the skies in Sheffield. It was time to grab my camera. Trying to remember all the astrophoto­graphy lessons provided in the magazine I began taking photos. What was an uneventful Saturday night turned out to be one of the best! Gary Moga, Sheffield
