Kirkstone & The Comet: The summer of 2020 brought about an amazing spectacle for astronomy enthusiasts all over the world in the form of Comet NEOWISE (Near Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer). NEOWISE is seen here over Place Fell in the distance, looking out from Kirkstone Pass towards Patterdale. The comet was first discovered on the 27th March 2020 by NASA astronomers and gets its name from being found during the NEOWISE mission, which was carried out to search for potentially hazardous objects near earth. The Comet travels through space at approximately 144,000 mph and only comes around once every 6800 to 7000 years so this shows just how vast our solar system really is! NEOWISE was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity to see and photograph and I feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to capture it!

About the photographer - Dom is a 26 year old astro-photographer from the Lake District, UK. He loves nothing more than travelling to remote and wild locations and capturing incredible dark skies using his astro-modified camera and specialist sky tracking equipment.
Dom says “I do what I do because I am fascinated by what’s out there, the aim of my work isn’t to show people what’s there that you can see, but what’s there that you can’t see! I also love inspiring people to get out and spend time under the stars, it will change your perspective on the world and is very healing!”
