Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) imaged on July 15, 2020 from Alto del Atochar at an altitide of 725 meters in the inland Valencia with a telephoto lens. This is the first time that I photograph the comet in the dusk sky and is higher than in my previous image taken on the 11th during morning twilight. To the naked eye perfectly observable with a tail about 15 degrees long. Barely any trace of the red sodium tail from days ago, but the blue ionic tail is more contrasted meanwhile the whitish and wide dust tail shows characteristic grooves.
