Comet C\2020 F3 NEOWISE

The purpose of this expedition was to photograph the extremely rare arrival of comet C\2020 F3 NEOWISE in our Solar System. The comet's arrival provided the unique opportunity to study a primordial celestial body created before 4.5 billion years, along with the planets we know today.

Comet C\2020 F3 NEOWISE was photographed from very dark locations in the wider area prefecture of Ilia, such as Katakolo, Amaliada and the artificial lake of Pinios river, in the village of Avgi.

From the first evening hours the comet was visible in the sky, among the stars of the constellation Ursa Major. The previous arrival of the comet was about 4500 years ago (2500 BC). The comet is now traveling at a speed of about 230,000 km/h and moving away from our Solar System, while its orbit is so large that it will visited again after 6800 years.
