Weather Forecast: Another great night to view Comet NEOWISE

Odisha planetarium's Deputy Director, Dr Subhendu Pattnaik told ANI, "From July 14, C/2020 F3, a comet discovered on March 27, will be clearly visible in the north-western sky".

As reported here, he shared some photos with Clarke Broadcasting. This allows the camera to take in more light from the comet over several seconds, producing an image that is much different from what the human eye perceives.

Brian Ottum, amateur astronomer in Ann Arbor, was taking pictures of the comet NEOWISE over the past few days.

There's a possibility, for the most optimistic of us, that Neowise might brighten dramatically to become a so-called "great comet" that's easily visible and spectacular to see with the naked eye. After this appearance, Neowise isn't expected to be near Earth again for about 6,800 years. For instance, Neowise has been confirmed to be brighter than P/2011 (PANSTARRS), but not as bright as Comet Hale-Bopp.

If you're going to try to spot the comet tonight, look out for it at around 2.30am in the north-east skies, just above the horizon.

It will be visible across the Northern Hemisphere until mid-August, when it heads back toward the outer solar system. Because of this, it is hard to say for sure when the next one will be visible in the night sky.

In the 911 call, a woman's voice is heard as she tells the dispatcher that she's calling from " Lake Piru ". Josey was found alone and sleeping on the boat wearing his life vest, but Rivera was nowhere to be found.

The rare opportunity to spot a comet has arrived for evening skywatchers, and people may want to plan accordingly to look for the object on a clear night before it fades away. You can view his photo in the image box. When you are looking at the comet, you are practically on the lookout at the beginning of our time.

Cruff says he rates this particular celestial event "near the top" among those he has been able to locally view over the years, adding that in the fairly dark skies above the Mother Lode, he is able to regularly photograph satellites, the Milky Way and other galaxies as well as meteors and planets.

Comet NEOWISE will be visible over the next few weeks here in the panhandle.

To watch Neowise, get a good view of the northwestern sky just after sunset.

The comet is slated for its closest pass on July 23, coming inside of roughly 103 million kilometers (64 million miles), according to NASA. Conditions should be solid for viewing this evening into Thursday morning. The blue tail is an ion tail produced of particles charged by the sun. Although it can be spotted without the use of special equipment, a pair of binoculars or low-power telescopes can be used to get a clear glimpse of comet NEOWISE. The very least we can do is wave goodbye!
