Watch Comet Nishimura as its tail explodes due to a solar storm (photos)

Astrophotographers around the world have captured stunning images of Comet Nishimura as it made its way through the solar system.

The comet was discovered in August 2023 by amateur astronomer Hideo Nishimura from Kakegawa, Japan using a Canon DSLR camera with a telephoto lens. Spotting a comet with a camera ready is quite an accomplishment, as most new comets are discovered these days using robotic telescopes such as the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System, or Pan-STARRS, in Hawaii.
