Comet Neowise


Comet Neowise was photographed by a local amateur astronomer over Chelford on Sunday 19th July.

It should still be visible through binoculars if all remains clear over the next few nights, and will then be back again in around 6,766 years' time.

You'll have plenty of time to prepare, however, here are some hints for how to see it over the next few days.

Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE, can be seen in the evening skies from the Northern hemisphere throughout July 2020. The comet is nearest to Earth is on 24th July when it will be 103.7 million kilometres distant.

The comet appears fairly low in the sky and you should see it if you look towards the Northern horizon.

Good luck, everyone.
