COMET-WATCHING: This morning’s view from West Seattle

12:27 PM: Thanks to everybody who sent photos of Comet NEOWISE, which – as noted here Friday – is viewable in the early-early-early morning sky right now (and soon, after sunset). Above, that’s from James Tilley; below, from Greg Snyder:

From Nick Newhall:

And from John Hinkey:

John notes his was; “Taken from Hamilton Viewpoint this morning between 3:30 and 4am. There were something like a dozen people there with maybe half taking images.”

    Thanks to all for sharing!  Not sure we’ll make it out to see it but…  If James sees this maybe he can tell where he took his photo?

      My picture (the top one) was taken at Cove 1, the first beach area west of Salty’s.That particular one was taken at 03:28.

    I’d love to know what time these photos were taken.

      The comet is visible between 3:30 and 4:00 AM and can be seen just above the horizon in the East/Northeast. Hamilton Viewpoint would be a great place to view the comet. Next week, it will be visible in the evening Northwestern skies.
