I believe your social media timeline is covered in photos of the comet Neowise. Perhaps you’ve taken some photos yourself, too. But here’s something a little bit different. The astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) have captured photos of the comet from some 254 miles above the Earth. And then, Seán Doran turned them into this beautiful 7-minute video.

Seán is a visual artist and he’s interested in science and astronomy. We have seen painting-like photos of Jupiter he has processed, as well as an animation of Jupiter that he created. To make the video of Neowise from the ISS, he used NASA’s timelapse photography from 5 July 2020. He repaired and processed the material, and converted it to the real-time video you can see above.

I tried finding the comet this weekend in the countryside. I was without my camera and without luck – because I couldn’t see it with the naked eye. I plan to try my luck again tomorrow night. I came back to my flat for the camera, I’m traveling again tomorrow, and this video has made even more determined to find it and add one more photo of Neowise to people’s timeline. :)

Have you seen or photographed the comet Neowise?

    Monsoon season in Colorado means no astrophotography. And dark sky sites are closed due to the virus, so…
