Even in a global pandemic, the wonder of a comet passing so close to Earth still brings people together to gaze at its beauty. Comet NEOWISE (named for the tech that first spotted it), was visible in the night sky throughout mid-July, giving stargazers and photographers alike the opportunity to capture some out-of-this-world images. 

Here are 14 of our favourite photos of Comet NEOWISE captured from across the country by the Canadian Geographic photo community on Instagram (#sharecangeo) and members of the Can Geo Photo Club.
