Photographer Jim Baugh captured an image of Comet Neowise 7/15/20 over the Chesapeake Bay as seen from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Cape Charles.
From Jim Baugh: I had been plagued with cloudy skies for several shoots this week and was filming and editing Jim Baugh Outdoors TV last week so this was the first opportunity to shoot the comet on a clear night.
Well, the north west was clear at least, also tried to shoot the Milky Way but clouds were hovering south south east. For at least this location if you are planning on viewing the comet, I suggest binoculars, telescope, or best a dsler. It is hard to see with the naked eye until it gets night, and then the window is not that long. But WOW it is something, and if it last, will not be around for another 6000 + years.
Jazz and I had another great nighttime adventure out filming, great dog. For the record, I did have a shot of rum or two when this was over.
