A photographer from North Vancouver captured stunning images of Comet Neowise passing over Okanagan Lake in Vernon.
By placing her camera on a tripod and setting a timer, North Vancouver resident Nicole Howell took almost 1,000 photos of the night sky over a five-hour period by the lake near Ellison Provincial Park. The fusion of the photos shows a dramatic sky and Comet C / 2020 F3, more commonly known as Neowise, passing over the Okanagan Indian Band and Adventure Bay.
Several attempts to photograph the comet were hampered by clouds, but on July 19, a clear sky shows the newly discovered comet passing through the sky.
The camera was set to an exposure of 15 seconds and took a photo every 18 seconds. The results allow anyone who doesn’t want to stay awake until the wee hours of the morning to see the comet.
Anyone who wants to see the comet will have to act quickly because the comet will not return for 6,800 years.
