When it comes to proposals, people really go out of their way to make sure the moment is beautiful and special. So you have to hand it to this man from New York who made the grand gesture even more extraordinary by timing it perfectly with a rare celestial event.

Pictures shared by John Nicotera on Twitter show the moment he went down on one knee to propose to his now-fiancé Erica Lee. And while that seems exciting as it is, what made the moment more special is Comet Neowise in the backdrop.

“Can I get a retweet for what I pulled off last night? We even saw the ISS pass by!” Nicotera tweeted. His pictures, clicked by his friend and photographer T Leach, have since gone viral.

Nicotera told CNN that his original idea for a proposal fell through. But since he had been following the comet, he figured this was it.

The couple, along with their friend T Leach went to Old Forge, New York, to see the comet. There Nicotera told his friend about the proposal and the two drew up quick a plan. He eventually went down on one knee and proposed.

“Every single star was out... it was too special to let it go,” he told CNN.

The beautiful pictures, since being shared on July 20, have collected over 7,700 likes and more than 1,500 likes - and still very much counting.

People on Twitter have been posting some wonderful reactions to this special moment.

“Wow, how beautiful. Congratulations on your engagement and on such a fabulous photo,” wrote a Twitter user. “Congratulations! The most epic proposal I’ve seen in my 62 years! #Neowisephotobomb,” posted another.
