Comet C/2020 F3 Neowise has dimmed so much that it's no longer visible to the naked eye. But it's now high enough in the sky to avoid the trees to the North West of my observatory.

On a clear night on Monday, I was able to get a good look at the bright green core and small tails of dust that still remain. It'll still be visible for a little while longer through my 8" telescope, but soon it'll get cold enough and dim to the blackness of space. See you again in 6,800 years Neowise!
