Comet Neowise will soon disappear for several thousand more years, so Michael Morgan and I visited the shoreline of Lake Erie to get some photos of this amazing sky phenomenon.
In the top photo, five points of the Big Dipper are apparent in the top center. This gives perspective to where the comet was located in relation to this well known constellation.
In this second photo, a random meteor streaked through the sky to offer an element of surprise and enhance the comet’s majestic presence.
This third picture shows some of the sky hues which are visible late at night over the horizon of Lake Erie. On a clear night, one can sometimes see the lights of Long Point, Canada from this Pennsylvania shoreline.
