Comet Neowise is moving away from the sun with apparent motion against the background stars that is exciting to watch. This image is the view of the comet at 21:54 local time (bottom) and 22:19 local time (top). During this time the comet's head moved visually from below the two stars to above them, as the background stars were setting in the evening sky.
