Comet Neowise Spotted Over New Melones

Comet Neowise as seen from the Czech Republic on the morning of July 6.

According to a report by CNET, last week the brightest comet passed a critical point when it managed to survive its closest pass by the Sun without cracking up from the heat on July 3.

From July 14, a comet discovered on March 27 named C/2020 F3 will appear in the North Western sky, Dr. Subhendu Pattnaik, Deputy Director of Pathani Samanta Planetarium, Odisha told news agency ANI. It will be visible to the naked eye after sunset just above the horizon in the northwest, as it moves away from the sun starting Saturday. NASA claimed it really is "no Hale-Bopp", the breathtaking comet of 1997, but it will be a single of the brightest this century.

South Lake Tahoe resident John Gomez woke up early Friday morning to catch a glimpse of NEOWISE and took the photos in this story. Once that happens, it won't be visible from Earth again until 8786.

The comet can be seen slowly moving across the sky above the stadium. In disorders with very little light air pollution, it may well be noticeable with the bare eye, but NASA endorses using binoculars or a telescope to spot its prolonged tail.

Comet Neowise shines at sunset previously mentioned the Port of Molfetta in Molfetta on July 11, 2020. The International Space Station will swing near the comet at about 5.30am.

"It's going towards the closest approach to Earth around July 22, and then it will slingshot out and leave our solar system".

Jeff Overs, who travelled to Stonehenge in Wiltshire to photograph the comet, described the moment as "astonishing".

Officially known as C/2020 F3, Comet NEOWISE can be seen with the naked eye once pinpointing with binoculars or a telescope. The fear was that the comet would lose its splendorous tail before it could be viewed in the evening sky later in the month.

Social media continues to buzz over the site of Comet NEOWISE this week.

From the middle of the month onwards, the comet will be visible all through the night but will remain low in the sky.

If you don't catch the comet before it inevitably fades away in August or sooner, you should have to wait awhile for the next trip through the inner solar system, now estimated to happen in the year 8786.
