Comet NEOWISE was discovered only in March of this year using the Neowise space telescope. Astronomers have determined its route brings it back to Earth in roughly 7,000 more years – really??? Here we are July 24, one day after it’s closest position to our planet, with a perfectly clear sky and no moon. I’m outside at 10pm scanning the sky with binoculars to find this comet and for the first half nothing… I had read it will appear below the Big Dipper and still nothing. More time passes and now its really dark and then BAM!! There it is and I can see it with the naked eye and with the binoculars… holy smoke that’s cool!
