Skywatchers: Grab your binoculars – Comet NEOWISE viewing

Posted By on July 21, 2020

If you enjoy nighttime sky watching, the next couple of days will have Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) at its closest point for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. Hopefully the sky will remain clear and you’ll be able to see the “beautiful crescent” of this 3 mile wide glow. I’ve personally yet to see it (requires binoculars or long lens assistance), but according to, July 22-23, 2020 will bring NEOWISE 64 million miles from earth. Take a look off to the west-northwest under the Big Dipper.
