Comet NEOWISE

Posted on Jul 13 2020 - 7:49pm

   

 

   Scouts - Get out and see the Comet!

   

 

 

 

When and where to look in the morning

As a morning object, the comet's best views will come during a three-day stretch on the mornings of July 11, 12 and 13, when it will stand 10 degrees above the northeast horizon, 80 minutes before sunrise — the beginning of nautical twilight. Your clenched fist held at arm's length measures approximately 10 degrees in width. So, on these three mornings, the head of Comet NEOWISE will appear about "one fist" up from the northeast horizon. 

Evening visibility 

The best viewing times will be from 8:40 PM (Sunset) to 10:15 PM (When the comet goes below the horizon).  Look at Northwest - if you use a compass look at 324 degrees.  Just above the horizon.

The first good opportunity for evening viewing begins on July 12, when the head of the comet will stand 5 degrees above the north-northwest horizon, 80 minutes after sunset (the end of nautical twilight). By July 14 its altitude will have already doubled to 10 degrees, and by July 19 it will have doubled yet again to 20 degrees up by the end of nautical twilight. By then it will have moved to above the northwest horizon.  

So, we at Space.com feel that the best time to view the comet during the evening will come during the July 14-19 time frame.
