Streaking Across the Sky

Photo by Andrew West


Comet Neowise was photographed over Lighthouse Beach two weeks by Andrew West from the Fort Myers New-Press (USA Today Network).

This weekend is the last time to see the comet from the northern hemisphere. Once it disappears from view, it will not be visible from Earth for another 6,800 years.

Full disclosure, the photographer said he had a hard time seeing it with his naked eye. Experts say it can be seen with binoculars from a dark location away from light pollution.

For our photography buffs out there, the camera can see it with a long exposure. This was photographed with a Canon 1Dx Mark II. Exposure time was between 20-30 seconds at f/2.8-4.5 at ISO 500-1000 depending on lighting conditions. Photographed with a 24-70mm lens at different focal lengths.
