comet neowise tongiht


Local times?


It should hit China

Where in the sky do we look? I saw Halleys Commet in 1986 as a kid in the village and will never forget that memory. Bright light with a long tail rising from the West and crossing the sky to the East. Yes comets usually move opposite direction of the other heavenly bodies.

I’ll be alert. Thanks

I don’t think I will get a chance to see it due to the cloud cover.

I highly doubt it was a comet that you saw that one time. Most probably… a shooting star. Comets stay for days in the sky, they look nondescript just like the planets or stars, only a tad fainter and definitely out of place for the habitual sky gazer. For you to see that famous tail of a comet you will certainly require at least a pair of binoculars!

Saw Halleys comet in 1986 with naked eyes.

Comet NEOWISE, named for NASA’s Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE), the space telescope that first spotted the comet in March, is currently gracing our night skies with its icy presence. It made its closest approach to the sun on July 3 and the comet is now visible to skywatchers in the Northern Hemisphere. It is so bright that, while it can help to use binoculars or a small telescope, the comet and its tail are visible with the naked eye.
You can spot the comet in the night sky after sunset and in the northwest just under the Big Dipper constellation.

My friend you should study some history about comets. Halley’s comet came visiting in 1986 and returns every 76 years. I saw it too in 1986 and it was quite a thing in the evening sky.

So anyone saw anything?

I agree.
Please, you should also agree that Halley’s is almost the rarest among the rare lot of naked eye visible comets. NEOWISE looks like a brand new entrant!

Mazee nimeshinda nje nikisaka… Cloudy as pea soup banae :confused:

Another surprise from Miss 2020 perhaps?

I think right now it is only visible to those in places like Nyahururu, Nanyuki, or anywhere north of the Equator.
