Comet NEOWISE was briefly visible over the iconic Empire State Building between passing clouds. When I saw this at the back of my camera as soon as I photographed it, I was pleasantly surprised.. here was a comet (about 73 million miles away at the time) seen through the intense artificial skyglow of NYC over the NYC skyline heading back out to return in about 6800 years or so. It primed me to wonder what the world would look like in the future when it returns.
