Seen the comet?
« on: July 12, 2020, 10:35:25 AM »

COMET NEOWISE IN THE EVENING SKY: Observers of Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3), by far the finest comet in years, have had just one complaint. You have to wake up at the crack of dawn to see it! Not anymore. NEOWISE is now visible in the evening sky, too. . Paolo Bardelli photographed it today after sunset in Sumirago, Italy. "Thanks to clear skies, I was able to see the comet very low in the north-northwest," says Bardelli.  At the moment "Evening Comet" NEOWISE is still a horizon-hugger, low and hard to see. However, it will climb higher in the sunset sky as July unfolds. After July 15th, sunset will be the time and place to see the comet as it rockets northward toward the Big Dipper. Stay tuned!  (Links included in the article to maps that show where the comet can be seen on the next several days.)

I haven't yet, but I need to remember to go outside at dusk to try! Someone posted photos on the local group and they were so cool. I remember seeing Haley's comet when I was a kid. :)
