Forums Comets C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) Hi,

Bill Ward


Indeed! A few comments by “science editors” and that’s that! I have no hope of seeing the thing again until this weekend if the weather forecast is to be believed. I was down on the south coast last weekend and it still surprises me the difference a few degrees in latitude makes. I got a view from Tunbridge Wells and it was quite amazing early Sunday morning, sadly I had no gear with me. It also the furthest south I’ve ever seen NLC!

With the sun a little lower maybe get some better images this weekend from back at 55.5N. I’m intrigued by the spectroscopy results from Robin, there are some unusual meteors with extremely high sodium emission too. Whether they are related I’m not sure but it makes the comet even more interesting!
