Comet NEOWISE: Where can I see the comet tonight?

NEOWISE is now approaching the seven stars of the Big Dipper and will pass below them until the end of the month.

According to the Royal Astronomical Society, it is critical you have an unobstructed view of the horizon if you go looking for NEOWISE.

Similarly, try to avoid all sources of light pollution – cars, buildings, street lamps – that can hinder your effort.

Astronomer Dr Robert Massey said: “There are reports of people being able to see it with the naked eye under good conditions, but some optical aid will always improve the view.”
