Comet Neowise Has Returned

After making its debut in the morning sky, as noted in my previous post, Comet Neowise disappeared for a couple of days, only to reappear in the evening sky, now in the northwest, if you’re in the northern hemisphere. Here are a few images taken Saturday night around 10:30, looking northwest from Marathon, TX, over the Glass Mountains.

Neowise will be with us through the end of the month, moving a little farther west each evening. Go outside and look just above the horizon. It’s the best show since Comet Hale-Bopp in 1995.

Photography and Travel, specifically adventure travel and backpacking in remote North America, give me an excuse to stay outside. If kayaks, bikes, backpacks, Jeeps, archeology, geology and wildlife can be included, all the better. Having spent my life working in the fashion and photography industries, I love the unusual, the spectacular, and the beautiful. God has given us a wonderful world in which to live, and I try to open others’ eyes to its wonders. I have shared nearly 50 years of this indescribable wonder with my wife, Jodie, and we go everywhere together. I hope you will share some of our journey with us.

  1. Nice. I’ve pretty much tossed in the towel. I was going to stay up for it last night…until the clouds rolled in. More clouds tonight. Guess I’ll wait for the next time…what? in about the year 8000?

  2. Look at this, also taken from Marathon. The people who track re-entries seem to agree that it’s the remnants of the Volga upper stage of the Soyuz 2.1v rocket that launched two classified Kosmos satellites on Nov. 25 in 2019. Apparently the folks at the Marathon Motel recorded the video last week.

    1. Wow. I had not heard about this video, or about the Soyuz re-entry. This would have been amazing to see live. Brings back memories of the space shuttle Columbia disaster.
