    Comet Neowise

    Bright comet. Looking like a good astrophotography subject. I have seen a few images of it on Cloudy Nights astronomy forum. I am in a valley, but the comet should be climbing into the evening sky if it doesn't sputter out in a couple days.

    @Hobbit I have clear skies now, but I never know when a marine layer will get in the way. My biggest problem is insomnia. I am up most of the night, which is great for night photography, but lousy for morning images.

    @Dawg Pics
    Thanks for the heads up about this comet.
    I tried 3 nights in a row and got clouds the first 2.
    I thought I was going to have to strain hard to see it, but nope.
    Its absolutely visible,(though tiny) without aid.

    @Roy1961. No, it is lower in the sky before the sun rises then it becomes an evening object instead of a morning one.
