Colorful cosmic concurrence


Dark skies over rural Eastern Washington offer a perfect opportunity to view the comet Neowise each night low on the horizon. Photographer Bob Juarez captured this image of the aurora borealis and comet last week in Lincoln County near Odessa. The comet, last visible from Earth about 6,800 years ago, is best seen between 3:30-4:30 a.m. below the Big Dipper constellation.
