From today onward, the best chance of seeing the comet will be in the evening sky, about an hour after sunset. When you've submitted your account email, we will send an email with a reset code.
Good binoculars will allow you to see more of the comet and its spectacular dust tail.
NEOWISE will be closest to Earth on July 22, before slowly departing, traveling out into deep space.
So we're here for it, with quick tips on when and where to see it.

Generally speaking, worldwide students must not take more than one online course if they want to maintain their legal status. Worldwide students will now be allowed to stay in the U.S. even if their colleges only provides online classes in the Fall .
As you can see on this chart, NEOWISE will move higher in the sky and be easier to spot, reaching its apex on July 23, when it makes its closest approach to Earth. He cautions that we have the standard uncertainty of how extensive the comet will be visible. Since city lights obscure our view of the universe above via a process called light pollution, it may be easier to see Neowise from outside city limits. The comet then step by step sits decreased in the sky in excess of the study course of about a single-50 percent hour right before disappearing down below the horizon.
Comet NEOWISE gets its name from NASA's Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE), a space-based infrared telescope dedicated to looking out for potentially hazardous asteroids and comets.
That's exactly what happened earlier this year to Comet SWAN, which was just barely visible to naked-eye viewers in the Southern Hemisphere, before fizzling as it rounded the sun.
The comet Neowise is turning out to be one of the best opportunities to see a comet with the naked eye since 1997's Hale-Bopp, considered by many to be the "last great comet", according to a CNN report. Scientists say that this comet is on a 6,800-year orbital period which is about the time that oars were invented and shortly before there were wheeled vehicles in Mesopotamia. NEOWISE has managed to surprise us all. Comets are notoriously fickle things that could always break up and burn out at any moment, so fingers crossed. There is also a blue tail on NEOWISE.
"Comet NEOWISE actually has two distinct tails, one of gas and one of rocky dust, that point in slightly different directions because they react differently to the movement of the comet and the solar wind of charged particles that stream from the Sun." explains astrophysicist Karl Battams of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington. Thankfully we should have obvious skies Thursday evening and Friday night time at least.
