OLD FORGE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A couple in Herkimer County captured their proposal with Comet Neowise in the background.

“I went out to see the comet Neowise and came home with a fiancé,” John Nicotera told ABC News Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee.

Neowise is the brightest comet in 23 years and won’t be back for 6,800 more.
