Second morning I imaged this visitor to our solar system; as it appeared at daybreak over Beckwith Township, ON.

NASA recently used IR imaging to assess why the comet is so bright, even after a recent close pass to our sun....The reason why: The diameter of the core is 5 Km!!!

I went out again this morning and shot the comet using a D500 and the Sigma Art 135mm f/1.8 lens, hoping to have a 50% larger comet in the field of view, but I could not improve upon a shot from yesterday with the same lens, but using the full frame D810....so I posted the image from yesterday!!

Not only a focusing aid (for the NEOWISE Comet images), but when I saw how clear the craters and mountains were at the terminator, I just had to take a couple of shots.

Pretty much the last image taken this morning in rapidly increasing daylight (0415 EDT).

The comet is in and out of clouds.
