Watch NEOWISE comet

COMET TRACKER UPDATE NO. 2: C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE)

The newly discovered Comet NEOWISE or officially C/2020 F3 is VISIBLE to the naked eye. HOWEVER, due to its current location (very low altitude) and magnitude, this might require a small binocular to observe from light-polluted areas like Metro Manila and the interference of bright twilight.

The position of the comet will continuously move towards the horizon within the next three days, making it more and more difficult to see.

However, it will already be visible JUST AFTER SUNSET starting next week on the northwestern part of the sky. If it maintains its brightness, we will have a better chance of spotting it since it will be moving up from the horizon.

HOW BRIGHT?

It is gradually dimming from its peak brightness. The latest observed magnitude is 1.7 (bright), based on the average observations of Comet Observers Database (COBS), while the estimated magnitude is 3.0 based on NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Horizons (JPL), as of July 10.

HOW TO LOCATE?

The comet is currently located near Auriga Constellation. The altitude or the height of this comet at 4:45 AM is at 3 degrees above the horizon and the azimuth or the direction is roughly 48 degrees (Prefer to use a compass or a tracker.)

WHEN TO SEE IT?

You can observe the comet before sunrise around 4:35 AM to 5:00 AM PhST. This might be a challenge to an observer to spot the comet. The comet will rise at 4:28 (July 11), 4:33 AM (July 12) and 4:40 AM (July 13).

DISCOVERY

It was discovered by NASA’s NEOWISE space telescope last March 27, 2020 and survived its perihelion last July 3, 2020.

HOW TO OBSERVE?

The best way to observe the comet is to photograph it. Although the comet is reportedly visible to the naked eye, the bright twilight will interfere with the entire display. So, we highly recommend to use a good camera, a small binocular or telescope to observe Comet NEOWISE for a remarkable treat!

NOTE: To account for possible changes, we'll be regularly posting updates every 3 days.
