Comet Neowise 12-7-20

C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) was discovered on March 27th 2020 by the NEOWISE space telescope. It passed closest to the Sun on July 3rd 2020 and will be closest to Earth on July 23rd. It is currently magnitude +1 and easily seen with the naked eye low on the northern horizon just above roof tops from 1.45 am onwards until sunrise. It steadily climbs towards the NE from 2am – 3am but the sky also gets brighter so for naked eye viewing earlier is better. DSC02228alt
