It's fascinating to think that the historic site of Stonehenge did not exist when the Comet NEOWISE last passed the Earth. It is due to return in approximately 6,800 years. I wonder if the stones will still be standing then? This is a single-exposure photograph taken early in the morning of 20 July. The orange glow is light pollution from the nearby villages of Durrington and Larkhill, and a passing lorry very kindly painted the rocks with light.
