  • Comet Neowise From ISS

A giant icy snowball is now hurtling past Earth and putting on a spectacular light show-but only for a limited time.

By August, the comet is expected to quickly fade away and will no longer be visible to the naked eye. Eastern time will be the sweet spot.

The new comet got its name from the Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer spacecraft, tasked with tracking asteroids, which sighted it in March.

The comet will be visible after the sunset for around 20 minutes for the next 20 days starting from Tuesday and more importantly people will be able to view the body with their naked eyes, Pattnaik said.

It's now easiest to see before dawn just above the horizon looking northeast, but after July 15 will then be best viewed in the northwest sky just after sunset, according to NASA.

Comet NEOWISE has started moving away from the Sun, but it's now on its way towards Earth, with its closest approach taking place on 22 July.

A bright comet is now in the evening sky and you can see it without a telescope.

Comet NEOWISE is hurtling close enough to the Earth to be easily visible as it streaks through our skies this month.

Comets are cosmic snowballs of frozen gases, rock and dust that orbit the Sun in a highly elliptical path.

Enjoy this spectacular comet every chance you can as you never know when the next bright will come to visit. It has a nucleus that is covered with sooty, dark particles left over from its formation near the birth of our solar system about 4.6 billion years ago.

The comet will appear low in the northwest sky (20 degrees from the horizon) on July 14.

Atop the almost 11,500 foot-high Hochfeiler mountain in the South Tyrol Alps in Italy, Martin Rietze captured the image of the NEOWISE comet and the Noctilucent clouds, SWNS reports.

In San Diego County, at least one stargazer was able to catch the comet streak across the early morning sky.
