A white swirl of charged gases detach from Comet Leonard

An ethereal image of Comet Leonard traveling towards the solar wind has taken the top prize in the Royal Observatory Greenwich’s Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition.

Austrian photographer Gerald Rhemann captured the view of the comet and its sweeping tail on Christmas Day 2021 from Namibia. Rhemann’s image reveals a ghostly veil of gas from the comet being caught and swept away by the solar wind.
