About this image

How long we have waited for a bright comet, One of the few clear nights last July and i wanted to get a photo of the comet over the city. I ended up on the top floor of the Jury's Inn multi story car park. It was a good location with the Cathedral being one premier landmarks of the city in the foreground. An NLC display was just starting which became one of the most luminous and photographed Type 5 displays ever with Comet Neowise just above it,  Thanks for reading
