See the NEOWISE Comet, discovered on March 27, streak through the sky all across the world. The comet will be closest to earth on July 22 and will start to fade after that date. It will be 6,800 years before Comet NEOWISE will not return to earth.

The Comet NEOWISE is seen in the sky shortly after sunset from an old farm at Fremont Center and Erhart roads near Mundelein. The comet was discovered on March 27, 2020 by NASA's Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) mission. The comet is said to be 3.1 miles across and won't be seen again for another 6,800 years. It can be seen near the Big Dipper and will start to fade at the end of this week.

Comet Neowise appears over Mount Washington in the night sky as seen from Dee Wright Observatory on McKenzie Pass east of Springfield, Ore., Tuesday, July 14, 2020. According to NASA the lower tail, which appears broad and fuzzy, is the dust tail created when dust lifts off the surface of the comet's nucleus and trails behind the comet in its orbit. The upper tail is the ion tail, which is made up of gases that have been ionized by losing electrons in the sun's intense light.

The Neowise Comet streaks across the northwestern skies over the Walla Walla, Wash., Friday night, July 17, 2020. According to NASA comets are cosmic snowballs of frozen gases, rock and dust. When a comet's orbit brings it close to the sun, it heats up and spews dust and gases into a giant glowing head larger than most planets.
