C/2020 F3 NEOWISE @ July 11,2020 03:19 UT


Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) imaged on July 11, 2020 from the Altos de Salomón at 1,000 meters altitude in the inland Valencia using a telephoto lens. With a brightness of near 1.5 magnitude and observable to the naked eye, the comet displays up to three tails more than ten degrees long and of different types: a wide and curved dust tail in white, a straight and narrow ionic tail in blue, and a sodium tail that can be seen in red alongside the first degrees of the ionic tail.
