TIVYSIDE photographer Barry Adams captured this stunning image of the comet Neowise on Sunday evening (July 12).

The comet is visible at the moment from about 11pm in the sky towards the north.

Comet Neowise has been spotted by stargazers across the UK and around the world as it heads past Earth.

It was discovered in late March and is one of the few comets in the 21st century that can be seen with the naked eye as it approached the sun.

The comet will be closest to the Earth on July 23 but will still be about 64 million miles (103 million km) away.

It will be visible throughout July in the northern hemisphere, moving in a westerly direction across the sky.
