    Local Astrophotographer captures comet shooting across skies above Perth

    Comet Neowise was discovered in March and is one of the few comets this century that can be seen with the naked eye as it approached the sun.

    Nadine Sabbagh based in Perth, captured it passing in the sky above Perth in the early hours of Tuesday morning at around 1am. The comet is said to be at its closest peak on 23 July, 64 million miles away before plunging deeper into the solar system.

    Photos of C/2020 F3 – also known as Neowise taken by Amateur Astrophotographer Nadine can be seen below.
