10 Photos Of Comet NEOWISE That Will Remind You Just How Incredible The Universe Is

Comet NEOWISE only passes by the Earth once every 6,800 years, and we’re lucky enough to see it! This fascinating ball of ice and fire was first spotted by telescope earlier this year, but as it inched its way closer, it became visible to the naked eye!

It will reach its nearest point on July 22 before it starts making its way back. For anyone hoping to catch a glimpse of this natural wonder, Scientific American said it’s most visible in the evening sky and recommended using the Comet NEOWISE app to help track its location. They also suggested finding the darkest sky (away from city lights) possible and letting your eyes adjust for at least 15 minutes. Then, just take in the awe-inspiring sight!

If you’re still not convinced it’s worth all the effort to go out and see it for yourself, here are 10 pictures that will help you make up your mind!
