Breathtaking pictures of the comet over Lincolnshire

By Local Democracy Reporter

A comet discovered by NASA was spotted in the night sky over the weekend, and the people of Lincolnshire got some amazing photos of it.

Comet Neowise was discovered by NASA back in March, named after the telescope that was used to spot it.

The comet will be visible in the night throughout the month of July, getting closest to Earth on July 23.

People across Lincolnshire have got their cameras out to capture the moment it became visible over the weekend, with incredible results.
