C/2020 F3 or NEOWISE was first seen on March 27, 2020, less than 3 months ago. So really, I picture somebody had an “oh sh*t” moment… “boss, look, comet!” (mumbled through a mask since it was March 2020.) Space is fascinating, scary, yet inviting. How do you not feel small and insignificant on a night like last night? I stood next to a lake, dodging mosquitoes, looking at a chunk of ice hurling away from us at 40 miles per second, 64 million miles away, in hope to take its photo and it be in focus. And this was my third night attempting to get this shot. I am a speck of a speck on a speck, with a camera. Humbled as we all might need to be now and then, but knowing I am less of a speck than the mosquitoes. Thank you to Wendy for the use of the perfect location and the company.
All photographed from the SE corner of Lake Wintrhop in Holliston, MA. Between 10-11pm, facing NW. Camera,
