Comet Neowise Somerset Journal

Prompted by a starry flurry of astro photography on our feed, Comet Neowise Somerset Journal is a collection of spectacular photos captured over the last month or so by Somerset photographers.

Comet Neowise isn’t considered a ‘great comet’ as astronomers would say, but dedicated photographers across the county set their alarms for the middle of the night to capture this spectacular sight.  Blurry eyed they set about waiting in the cold night for the comet which they captured over Somerset landscape and famous landmarks.
