Comet Neowise streaking past Earth, providing spectacular show

And C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) - nicknamed Comet NEOWISE, has been very the splendor.

Comet Neowise soars in the horizon of the early morning sky in this view from the near the grand view lookout at the Colorado National Monument in the US.

Some lucky Vancouverites who managed to catch a glimpse last night shared the stunning images on social media, including Vancouver photographer Milan Miguel.

Researchers say the comet is about 3 mile across. Now the comet is visible to the naked eye, however, it may look more like a star, so make sure to grab those binoculars before heading out.

Neowise is the third comet to be discovered in 2020 and can be visible through naked eyes as per an article on CNET.

A new comet discovered by NASA's NEOWISE infrared space telescope back in March can be spotted in Toronto's night skies as it moves through space, and it's considered to be the brightest comet visible from the Northern Hemisphere in 25 years.

Measuring a little more than half the height of Mount Everest, Boyle described Neowise as one of the brightest comets in recent history.

A blazing comet that has traveled for 6,800 years was seen streaking over Stonehenge on a ideal summer's evening.

It will be visible over India for the next 20 days getting brighter each evening.

A comet is approaching close to Earth, and sadly it won't be hitting us, ending this miserable year, but it's in the U.S. and giving us one of the best skyshows in recent memory! Comet NEOWISE is still incredibly far away from us (over 100 million kilometres) in fact, and the brightness is caused by the particles and gases around the comet being lit up by the Sun as it makes its spectacular flyby. The comet will be visible every evening for about 20 minutes for next 20 days before it reaches a distance from where it will no longer be visible.

Comet NEOWISE has begun transferring absent from the Sunlight, but it truly is now on its way in direction of Earth, with its closest tactic using location on 22 July.

"In the evenings to follow, the comet will rapidly climb higher in the sky and will be visible for a longer period", said Dr. Subhendu Pattnaik, Deputy Director Pathani Samanta Planetarium, Bhubaneswar.

Astronomer Dr Robert Massey said: "There are reports of people being able to see it with the naked eye under good conditions, but some optical aid will always improve the view".
