    Comet Neowise
    From: Frank Reed

    There's a good comet in view in morning twilight, about to move over to evening twilight. It is circumpolar, visible all night long (though low in the sky), for observers at higher northern latitudes (e.g. in the UK). For the next few days, if you go out right at the beginning of nautical twilight when there's only a light glow in the east and look very low in the northeast, below and to the left of Capella, you should be able to find it easily with binoculars. It's a nice-looking comet with a classic tail, but it's barely bright enough for naked eye observation, even with excellent skies. There's good coverage with some nice photos and finder charts in Bob King's article for Sky & Telescopehttps://skyandtelescope.org/astronomy-news/comet-neowise-delights-at-dawn/.
