Comet C/2020 F3 (Neowise)
Comet Neowise has appeared in the Southern Hemisphere skies over Botswana. These views show the comet under crescent moonlight with both its ion (blue) and dust (yellow) tails (image at left). The image at right shows the comet's green head and dust appearing exceedingly red owing to wind-blown dust in Earth's atmosphere.
