The Comet Collage

For the last couple of months, Comet C/2022 E3 ZTF has been the darling of astronomers and astrophotographers. Nicknamed as "Neanderthal Comet", it is currently the queen of the night sky in the northern hemisphere, it is wonderfully showing off its ion tail, dust tail and the anti tail (optical phenomenon).

We, Astronomads Bangla, wanted to grab this opportunity, fighting with Kolkata's light pollution and air pollution and present a collage of the comet taken at different focal lengths.
