Comet NEOWISE will be putting on a show through July. It made its closest approach to the Sun on July 3rd, and now this celestial dirty snowball is making its way back out into the outer solar system. Before it leaves, it will make its closest approach to the Earth on July 22! Look towards the northeast, near the horizon below the Big Dipper just after sunset, and you might spot it. It may be visible to the unaided eye, but will be easier to spot with a pair of binoculars or a small telescope.
