Rare comet Neowise to be visible from Western Australia this weekend

He had been tracking the comet and she said she hadn't seen it yet, so he chose to take her to the farm where they live in Bahama, North Carolina, so they could take a picture with the cosmic wonder.

The event is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience - the comet takes about 6,800 years to complete its path around the sun, according to NASA.

The comet passes closest to the Earth on Thursday (July 23) where it will be below and slightly to the right of the Plough.

NEOWISE, which is passing through the inner Solar System on its 6,800 year orbit around the Sun, is now visible in the Northwestern sky just after sunset. "It's getting dimmer, so now it's a good chance to get out and try to get a picture of it".

"If the Big Dipper is visible by then, it is directly on a line between the (bottom) bowl of the dipper and the horizon", Schleicher said. "If you have a pair of binoculars look for a fuzzy streak in the sky with a pinpoint end on it".

Neowise survived its closest brush with the sun on July 3 and has been heading in our direction ever since.

"He experienced the light shining on me so he could get us in the photo, so I couldn't see almost anything", she stated.

PHOENIX - Arizona skywatchers have been over the moon about a comet that has graced the night sky since July 11.

Astrophotographers, as well as astronauts aboard the International Space Station, have captured the stunning celestial phenomenon, which will continue to bring spectacular sightings into early August.

"You think about there is five people floating in space about 400 kilometers above us". Being outside of the city and away from light pollution will also make it easier to spot.
