The night of the 22nd to the 23rd of January 2023 the Comet 2022 E3 crossed an interesting field of galaxies, including NGC5709. While capturing telescopic images from my backyard observatory I managed to take this landscape photo of the event. The comet just rose behind the forest when I started capturing the images, so I thought it was a great opportunity to capture the beauty of this comet and the landscape that surrounded my home observatory.

Thanks for your time on this website.
