How to Find the Neowise Comet in the Night Sky

Newly discovered comet Neowise has been getting a lot of attention in the nighttime sky of the northern hemisphere. If you’re north of the equator, it’s visible to the naked eye.

To find it, locate a dark area with a good view of the sky. Just after sunset, look Northwest toward the big dipper. Neowise will look like a "fuzzy star with a bit of a tail." NASA also recommends binoculars to get a better view!

The comet is a flying ball of frozen debris, with a long, gassy tail. It’s about three miles wide and over 4 billion years old!
