Orion and the visitor

Copyright: Robin Onderka |


What is that green bulb next to the Orion’s belt? At this time, you can observe and photograph beautiful Comet C/2020 M3 Atlas, which is currently passing by Orion Constellation. Although not as majestic as Comet Neowise, it is definitely worth mentioning.


In the photo you can see the constellations that are typical of the winter sky in the northern hemisphere. They beautifully stretch over the mountains and cities of Slovakia, which are shrouded in mist. Thanks to the modified camera and long exposures, you can also see a lot of details of the emission (red) and reflection (blue) nebulae of these constellations. if you look closely, you will also see a Gegenschein and a soft airglow.
