Comet Viewing

For those of you who are interested, Comet Neowise is very visible tonight. Binoculars help, but I can see it with my naked eye right now. Just look down from the Big Dipper and you’ll see that “fuzzy star” with a blur of light behind it. The darker your location is the better you’ll be able to see it.

In the image below, you’ll see the comet climbing higher in the sky after the 15th. The Big Dipper is shown for reference. The comet will get closer to the horizon as we go through the night.

Happy stargazing!
