A newly discovered comet raced over B.C. skies this past week and many were able to catch a glimpse of it.
Comet NEOWISE was first discovered in March and could only be seen through a powerful telescope. However, it brightened up enough recently to make it visible to the human eye.
Some B.C. residents were even able to catch it through their phones and cameras. So, if you missed it, here’s proof of the phenomenon across the province:
