Weather of Arabia - It was a dazzling scene for Australian photographer Stanley Arianeto under the sky with its dancing colors, as he watched the comet "Neowise" cross the horizon before his eyes, in an astronomical event that only repeats every 6800 years, and that was in the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Alberta. He succeeded in taking the photo after several chases of the comet.
Over the course of 11 days, the photographer made a minute hunt for clear skies in the hope of capturing a unique composition of this rare astronomical event, and after his first unsuccessful attempt he became more determined, knowing that the weather in the mountains can change dramatically in a matter of minutes, but he studied forecasts Weather for the next several hours and choose the ideal location and time for filming.
It was a splendid sight, as the clouds helped amplify the golden light of the sky, and as darkness fell, miraculously, the clouds began to dissipate and Comet Newwise became visible to the naked eye, and the unexpected purple, blue-green glow of the aurora borealis became increasingly prominent.
Then the next amazing thing happened: STEVE, short for Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement, is an atmospheric optical phenomenon that resembles the aurora borealis but appears high in the sky as a purple-green strip of light.
Scientists first spotted the comet “NEOWISE” as it rushed towards the sun on March 27, 2020, using the space telescope known as the Wide-Range Infrared Survey Explorer for Near-Earth Objects. The comet was named “NEOWISE” As an unofficial name, its official name is comet "C/2020 F3".
Comets are icy bodies made up of ice, rocks and dust, often called "cosmic snowballs." These bodies revolve around the sun, and when they get closer to it, they heat up and two tails begin to flow from them, the first is made up of gas and dust, and the second is made up of electrically charged gas particles or ions, an ion tail.
