You can see the comet NEOWISE from Southern Delaware as it travels past earth at 144,000 miles per hour, until about July 23rd. The comet is about 3 miles in diameter and contains roughly 13 million Olympic sized swimming pools worth of water. Look to the North West about 90 minutes after sunset for your best chance to spot it. 📷#Repost @elliotmacguire ・・・ One of the best jobs I’ve ever had, (besides photography) was working the beach shacks. I worked for Catt’s beach service for 5 years. 4 years down at Gordon’s Pond and then 1 working Brooklyn Ave in downtown Rehoboth. So these beach shacks always have a special place in my mind. I’m sure when most of you think about your summers in Rehoboth, these come to mind. • So when I got the chance to shoot a comet over them I took it! It’s been great shooting this comet around iconic places/things in Rehoboth that I love. A special astrological event in a special place.
