Comet and the Clouds

"The Comet and the Clouds" - Comet Neowise and Noctilucent Clouds, Dunstanburgh, Northumberland, UK.

We were fortunate to be on holiday by the Northumberland coast during the passing of comet Neowise (C/2020 F3). Clear skies and early mornings provided some stunning visuals.

Here the comet can be seen over the sea partnered with a layer of shimmering Noctilucent clouds. Noctilucent clouds consist of ice crystals and are only visible during astronomical twilight. Generally visible during summer months when the Sun is below the horizon.

This is a 4 shot vertical panorama, stitched in Lightroom and photoshop.
