In these days of July we are witnessing an exceptional astronomical event, visible to the naked eye even on Italian nights: the passage of the Kite NEOWISE. Until July 10th this comet was visible before dawn, from 11 July you can also see them in the evening, between 21 and 24, low on the northwest horizon. Below the video released by the National Institute of Astrophysics showing how to see it.
Still from Rome, look at this photograph by Gianluca Masi, with the comet above the dome of San Pietro. Easy to see even with the naked eye, and despite the first morning light.
The spectacle of the comet Neowise can be seen in the skies around the world. Another view, certainly not accessible to all but truly spectacular is what you get from International Space Station. The video we propose below comes right from there.
And finally, we leave with a video that arrives from the USA: the timelapse shows the formidable rising of the comet from the horizon in a place in South Dakota, in the United States of America.
As we said, the Neowise comet will be visible from Italy throughout the month of July. Easy to see in the evening, on the north-west horizon, low on the horizon, even if light pollution is an enemy of observing the starry sky. More information can be found on the INAF website, the National Institute of Astrophysics.
