With an orbit period of 6,766 years, this is likely current earthlings' only chance to spot the comet NEOWISE pending the invention of time travel. If you're in Colorado, you're in luck – it's quite easy to spot and will be visible for several more days.
The comet is most visible from 9 to 11 PM, right after the sun fully sets. To find it, you'll want to look northwest, searching for the comet just below the big dipper.
According to EarthSky.org, the comet will be the closest to earth on Thursday, July 23. After that, the comet will get increasingly farther from earth until it disappears altogether.
If you want to get the best view, you'll want to get away from city lights on a clear night. A set of binoculars or a telescope will enhance the view of this comet even more.
Here's a look at the comet from Eldora Mountain Resort:
Comet NEOWISE flying high over your home hill last night! If you haven't seen it for yourself, there's still time! Tonight after sunset look to the northwest, just under the Big Dipper, you should see it blazing through the sky 64 million miles away.— Eldora (@eldoramtnresort) July 22, 2020
