Thank you, Helge! And those are great photos, both of the comet and Saturn! We were so focused on trying to capture the comet (being admittedly more than a little struck by the Your Name enthusiasm of the cosmic event) that we didn’t even know about Saturn’s visibility in the sky. But we did notice a very bright star, in the opposite direction, apparently moving much faster in the sky than the other stars – thanks to you, we think that it actually was Saturn we saw!
We had seen images on Wikipedia of NEOWISE from Berlin and Paris, and we hoped that it would be visible from Stockholm as well. But it was way too bright up here in the North, even when the sun was at its lowest around 1 A.M. Anyway, thanks to you, we got to see the comet again – that’s part of the magic of Internet: the whole world is within grasp, as long as there are people willing to share their part of the world.
Here's how bright the night was in Stockolm:
This is at EV -0.5, and if memory serves us right it is about as bright as we perceived, give or take.
The comet would be about centered in the image, by the sunlit clouds.
The resolution of this preview image is too small to accurately show it, but Saturn would be the fast-moving light source in the far left of the image, right by the tree tops and the electrical power station mast.
Regarding the comet, it might as well be a trick of the mind due to an eagerness to see it, but in this circled area we think that the comet is extremely faintly showing.
Ridiculously faint if so! We are glad to see your picture of it! Had we not lived the baby life, we would be eager to be on our way south to travel closer to your latitude! Sofia has beautiful childhood memories from the clear night skies of Southern Germany, where she once saw an uncountable amount of falling stars in a small amount of time. Sometime, post-pandemic, post-infancy, we’ll be eager to experience something like that – until then we are very glad to see pictures like yours
