A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, that’s what photographing Comet Neowise over London (or anywhere else, really) is!

I’m not going to dive into too many descriptions of the event. I’m sure you all know about it by now.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime event because the comet was only discovered last March, and it won’t be visible again for another 7000 years (seven thousand!). You still have plenty of time to witness it, as it will be visible throughout July (in the Northern hemisphere). And if you live in a dark enough area, you’ll even be able to see it with the naked eye. That’s how bright it is!

A couple of nights ago, I was out with some friends to try and capture the passing of the comet over the London skyline. We went to a dark park somewhere South of London and filmed the whole thing. That’s what my weekly video is about, Comet Neowise over London.
And here are the links to my friends’ Instagram profiles:
Charles @bothhemispheres
Michael @londonviewpoints (check his YouTube as well!)
Henry @enbytv

I think I will try to do this again, for as long as the comet is visible and from different points of view. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate… But London being London, I would not be too sure.
Somewhere lower than the hill we were, maybe. Even Central London if I find that the comet will be visible.

The Video

Here it is. Full of vlogging, timelapse videos and photos of Comet Neowise over London. And a surprise at the end… so watch it all!

Have you witnessed the comet yourselves? Let me know in the comments, and send me links to your photos/videos!
If you are looking to learn some Astrophotography, I do offer this kind of workshops. There’s one every month for full moon photography, for example. Being passionate about supermoons (as often seen in this blog), you can definitely leverage my knowledge there.

As you can see, it was actually higher than what my thumbnail suggests. But it would have not fitted otherwise!
