If you look up in the sky tonight, you may see more than just the Big Dipper!

Comet NEOWISE will have its closest approach to Earth on July 22-23 and will be visible in the late evening instead of the early morning hours, which was the case earlier this month.

From mid-July onward, you’ll be able to see the comet below the Big Dipper in the northwest sky.

For best viewing, NASA recommends finding a spot away from city lights and with a clear view of the sky. You may be able to see it with the naked eye, but you’ll improve your chances if you might bring binoculars or a small telescope.
