Images of comet Neowise in Seattle’s sky
Have you missed the comet Neowise?
Lucky for you, the National Weather Service in Seattle has captured several shots of the comet streaking across the Seattle sky since Monday. (See below)
NASA says Neowise will become increasingly visible shortly after sunset in the northwest sky. With the naked eye, the comet will look like a fuzzy star with a short tail. It’s recommended you use binoculars or a telescope.
Forecasters say clouds are moving in Wednesday evening into Thursday, so tonight may be your last chance before the weekend when the clouds move out.
From NASA, here’s how to see Neowise:
- Find a spot away from city lights with an unobstructed view of the sky
- Just after sunset, look below the Big Dipper in the northwest sky
- If you have them, bring binoculars or a small telescope to get the best views of this dazzling display
