    Just saw Neowise tonight. Anyone else?

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2020/07/13/comet-neowise-night-sky/

    It was hard to find, but once I found it, it was pretty magnificent. I found it through binoculars. It was faint but had a very large tail. Once I found it, I could also see it with my naked eye, though it was much fainter. It is supposed to gradually brighten and get more prominent. Be on the lookout!

    Bump for the morning crowd.

    Quoted from Bax1:

    I've been trying to but I think the tree line keeps blocking it. I'd really like to see it!!

    I believe it will rise higher in the sky as the week goes on. I saw it around 15-20 degrees above the horizon. I had to go to a pretty open area to see it.

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    I'll be taking the telescopes out over the next few nights to see if I can see it.

    I’m not sure if it is visible that far south yet. I thought it was going to be a few days before you could see it in the southern half of the country but I could be wrong.

    Quoted from Bax1:

    looks like next clear day I will need to take a 20 min drive to a huge hill and i should be able to see the horizon better. it is north west correct?

    Yes. Right now it is below and to the right of the Big Dipper. Though, over the next few days it is supposed to move up and to the left of the Big Dipper.

    There’s a online app mentioned in the WP article I cited that is supposed to tell you how best to see it from your location, but I couldn’t get it to work.

    Going to try to see it again tonight. Just found this visual which may be helpful for locating it as it moves from day to day. Though, I must say, when I first saw it a few days ago, I thought it was much more to the right of the dipper. I could be wrong or maybe I wasn’t placing things properly.

    It won’t be back again for 6,800 years, so unless you plan to wait, try to see it now.

    Quoted from Vyzer2:

    Viewed it the last 3 nights. Looked much better through binoculars than through a telescope. The tail was more pronounced with binos. Amazing that anyone can see it with their eyes, but young eyes are much better than older ones.
    Wolfmancat: I like that NVG monocular.

    My mid-40ish eyes could see it but just barely. And only when I knew exactly where it was having seen it through binoculars.
