Tail Grows on Comet Neowise

Comet Neowise will be closest to Earth on the evening of July 22, coming within 64 millions miles away. Viewing opportunities are still existing as its tail continues to grow.

The head of the comet appears about “one fist” up from the northeast horizon, 80 minutes before sunrise. More tips on viewing at Space.com (Image from Joe Rao/Space.com)
