Ok, I know I was excited yesterday about catching Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) in my DIY allsky camera… but last nights sky was clear… ALL NIGHT!

So, the comet is much easier to see, and lasts pretty much the entire timelapse ( aside from sunset/sunrise where it’s too faint and blown out by the light from the Sun ).

The comet starts on the far left near the horizon, and rotates counter-clockwise.
