An incredibly rare comet, called the NEOWISE comet was captured above Vancouver last night.
Comet C/2020 F3, or NEOWISE, has been lighting up night skies around the planet for days now, and thankfully, you have the chance to see it for yourself for the next two weeks.

Some lucky Vancouverites who managed to catch a glimpse last night shared the stunning images on social media, including Vancouver photographer Milan Miguel.
Comet NEOWISE will reach the closest point to earth on July 22 to 23, a time when the views will get even more spectacular, so you can still have chance to see it if you haven’t already.
Take a look through some images below:
Even better photos of Comet NEOWISE photographed over Vancouver on Sunday night.
The clearer skies meant the comet’s tail was visible to the naked eye, and photos reveal the comet’s second, fainter ion tail.#comet #cometNEOWISE #NEOWISE #vancouver @c2020f3 @DailyHiveVan @CTV pic.twitter.com/3u5apFNXNS
