There’s a must see comet in the sky this summer! In fact, the brightest comet in the Northern Hemisphere since Hale-Bopp in 1997.
Last week, Comet NEOWISE dazzled us before dawn. Now it has transitioned to an evening object. Take a stroll after sunset and look to the NorthWest under the Big Dipper. Binoculars will help to spot the comet low on the horizon. Check it out in the next few days, because NEOWISE is headed back out to the far reaches of the solar system and won’t return for approx. 6,900 years.
Mary Eiberger-Salas took this amazing photo from South Boulder with her iPhone before dawn on July 9th.
The chart is from the SkySafari app.
