About this image

A widefield image of Comet Neowise lying below the Plough asterism in Ursa Major yesterday evening. The brighter streak is the ISS making a pass in the northern sky - it passed just above Polaris from our latitude (45deg 54 min North). The bright light on the horizon is not the setting Sun - it is a tractor hard at work in the fields at this late hour!
