    Curious if anyone has seen it on it's return trip from the sun?

    Yes, earlier this week. Looking forward to seeing it in the evening sky, farther above the horizon and haze.

    Anyone ever notice with meteors, comets etc..that they are always falling down or from top to bottom? Why is it we never ever see a meteor coming from below going North?

    I mean we are this ball spinning in many directions in a 3D universe... Why have we never seen meteors shooting up from the horizon up?

    The projector that displays the comet doesn't allow these to move that direction.

    Does anyone know if there's been any good video or pics that they've gotten from the Space Station?

    Thanks! That footage is obviously sped up, right?

    Also, I'm shocked by that video.... I thought the Earth was flat! ;)

    I believe it’s still shots pieced together



    It’s all faked!

    I checked it out this morning. Took some pictures with a 400 mm lens. Just looks like a little white blob though. Here's a snip of the blob. Capture.JPG

    Predawn shots will be pretty tricky from here forward.

    I'm not a photographer at all and that's about how I expect my photo to turn out, haha.

    Went out again this morning. It was cloudy so you could only get a few glimpses of it. I figured I could at least get some photos of the sunrise while I was out. Haven't looked at them on the PC yet to see if any were worth while.
    Judging by the photo in that tweet above I needed to be out much earlier. Not sure when it will be visible in the evenings at this point. Guess I should try to look that up.

    Local viewers got a look at NEOWISE in the more convenient hours after sunset beginning last night.
