Comets

C/2020 F3 Neowise on 29-30 July 2020.
Figure 1: C/2020 F3 Neowise on 29-30 July 2020.
Comets are objects that, when getting close to the Sun warm up and release gas. This gas can be seen as a coma and sometimes also as a tail or even double tail.
A very bright and recent comet was C/2020 F3 NEOWISE, which was visible to the unaided eye and showed a very nice double tail.


If you have any questions and/or remarks please let me know.
