Oh WOW! A 6000-plus Year Naked Eye Comet in the Sky This Month of July

 

The news has just reported that the comet NEOWISE has been seen in our skies tonight and can be viewed with the naked eye for a month! Apparently, scientist did not believe that this comet would be able to be viewed so nothing was reported until now due to certain observers who were able to capture it and report it. This comet was said to first be viewed on March 27, 2020 but because of the other two recent comets that did not make it into are viewpoint, nothing was reported until today.

This image – taken on the morning of July 5, 2020, by Jeremy Perez at Sunset Crater in Arizona – shows comet C/2020 F3

(NEOWISE) on the same scale that you might see it with the eye alone. Try to use binoculars to reveal all the beauty of this

comet. Used with permission. Thank you, Jeremy!

Another July 5 shot of comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) by Jeremy Perez in Arizona. This one is more of a close-up. “It was an easy

naked-eye object,” wrote this experienced sky observer, who was looking in a desert sky, “but really rewarding through binoculars.”

Used with permission. Thanks again, Jeremy!

Here is another shot of #CometNeowise...this time a bit closer! Look at that beautiful tail! 

Taken in Arizona this morning!

 

 

The last time a GREAT COMET was seen in our sky was 1997. So, would this Neowise comet be a Great Comet? Scientist say that it shines as some of the brightest stars in the sky. However, have they defined this comet to be a Great Comet has not been determined yet. Historians report another GREAT COMET back in 1812 [i.e. tHE GREAT COMET OF 1811] of which was seen even in the daytime for months! And some historians say that due to a phenomenal earthquake, this Great Comet of 1811-12, etc. that this was the reason for the Second War of Independence; the War of 1812. Nevertheless, it will be 6000+ years before this Neowise comet will cycle near to our planet again!

How to see Comet NEOWISE

Posted by Eddie Irizarry in SPACE/ July 10, 2020

 

… Comet NEOWISE was closest to the sun on July 3, 2020, passing at about 26.7 million miles (43 million km) from the sun, or a bit closer than the average distance from the sun to Mercury. Observers are still reporting seeing it, and so it appears to have survived the close encounter with our star.

Wow! This comet came closer than some of our planets! So therefore, this month brings new wonders in our sky! Not only will there be a GRAND CONJUNCTION towards the end of this month but now, we have an unexpected visible comet! A Grand Conjunction has been defined as the conjunction of the two giant planets, Jupiter and Saturn, a rare event. And furthermore, it will be 6000+ years before this Neowise comet cycles near to the planet earth again!

 

If you are standing facing east, you will see Venus, which is the third-brightest object in the sky (after the moon and sun). Look to the left of Venus to see the bright star Capella. The comet will be below Capella during the mornings of the first half of July, but moving to the left (north) each day:
