Russian cosmonaut Ivan Wagner, who is currently on the International space station (ISS) photographed the comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE). He published a photo on his Twitter page.
“The next wave tried a bit closer to photograph the brightest for the last seven years the comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE). Pretty good you can see her tail from outer space, aboard the International space station!” — he signed photo.
In the coming days the comet can be seen from the Earth in the sky over North-Eastern horizon near the constellation of Auriga.
Earlier, Wagner told about the complexities of life in weightlessness. According to him, the most difficult is “prolonged isolation in a confined space” and living conditions.
At the moment Ivan Wagner is part of the ISS crew together with Anatoliy Ivanishin and NASA astronauts Christopher Cassidy, Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken. They continued their expedition planned program.
