Comet Neowise

I’ve just hear about Comet Neowise for the first time. Has anyone seen it yet? I’m going to try tonight, but I wonder how visible it will be in the city? Oh! Just read this!

Skywatching is typically a failed endeavor in the immediate NYC Metro Area, as light pollution creates very difficult viewing conditions. Comet Neowise is an exception, however, thanks to its brightness and the time of day at which it is best viewed. Over the next week, Neowise will be visible from the NYC Metro Area at the following times:

9:30pm to 12:30am in the Northwest sky
2:30am until sunrise in the Northeast sky

My morning company. My pandemic partners. Oh God I am so sick to death of the pandemic. I think I need to do something today to get out of this funk I’ve found myself in. Maybe a long walk? Grilled cheddar cheese and french fries?
