Comet Neowise looks real, especially after the discovery of two other comets, Swan and Atlas, this year, according tomedia reports. In fact, netizens found C/2020 F3 (also known as Neowise). Last week, the space snowball crossed a tipping point: it survived the July 3, when it was closest to the sun, and it didn’t crack in high temperatures like many other comets.
Over the weekend, many amateur astrographers began sharing stunning photos of the comet appearing on the horizon before dawn.
As comet Neowise moves farther away from the sun and closer to Earth, its visible state will continue from before dawn to night.
NASA Solar System Ambassador Eddie Irizarry said the comet will remain visible until and after the first rays of light by July 11. It will reappear on the evening of July 15-16. And in the second half of July, when it’s a little higher in the sky, people should see it more easily. Until then, it will be closer to the northeast horizon.
For now, many who have successfully discovered the comet share the advice that it will be positioned in the sky first with binoculars or telescopes, and that it should be traced with the naked eye once it is found with the eye.
Astronauts on the International Space Station also used their superior vantage point to discover the comet.
The comet is known to be closest to Earth on July 23, and it could be a particularly exciting opportunity for people to see if its brightness continues at its current level and even increases. If you miss the July 24 and 25 flight dates, it will rise even higher in the sky. However, we know that comets are notoriously fickle, and they can disintegrate and burn at any time, so we pray that everything will go according to plan.
If the comet is not seen by August or earlier, it will have to wait a long time, according to current estimates, and the next time it enters the inner solar system is estimated to be 8786.
