Comet Neowise lights up the summer sky

  • Comet NEOWISE Is Visible Right Now, And It Won't Be Back For Almost 7,000 Years

The comet was discovered in March via NASA's Neowise infrared space telescope, according to the Associated Press.

Sadly, Australian stargazers will be out of luck trying to find the comet in the night sky, as will the rest of the southern hemisphere. In the Northern Hemisphere, we have mostly skipped the early morning perspective of the comet, but in the next week or so (14-19 July) the comet will be noticeable with the bare eye (but best witnessed with a small telescope or even binoculars) about an hour and a fifty percent immediately after sunset.

"It's going to be around for a while I think - so definitely worth a look on a clear night!" It will be closest to earth, 103 million kilometres away, as it makes its way out of the solar system on July 22.

If you value what this story gives you, please consider supporting the Comet. News agency ANI citing deputy director of Odisha's Pathani Samanta Planetarium said that the comet can be visible everyday for 20 days and for 20 minutes. The bright skies in Alaska, however, will likely diminish any view of it.

Add Comet Neowise to the growing list of astronomical events occurring in July, including Jupiter and Saturn's peak brightness (on July 14 and 20 respectively) and a double meteor shower at the end of the month.

"This very close passage by the sun is cooking the comet's outermost layers, causing gas and dust to erupt off the icy surface and creating a large tail of debris", NASA said in an article last week.

NEOWISE is NASA's Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer.

The NASA Science Live episode will air live at 3 PM EDT on Wednesday (12:30 AM IST on Thursday) on NASA Television and their official website. "Its nucleus is covered with sooty material dating back to the origin of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago", the AP said.

The window to spot NEOWISE is closing quickly - the fleeting comet is expected to remain visible in the northern hemisphere just through July.

The comet known as NEOWISE was captured by time-lapse images from the International Space Station, and it's now been made into a stunning 4K video.

Between stunning supermoons and awesome planetary conjunctions, it feels like outer space has been working overtime lately to distract us Earthlings from the dumpster fire that is 2020.

Tonight the comet will be visible looking directly north but over the coming nights it will transfer westwards as it moves in its orbit.
