Comet NEOWISE in July

In the eastern pre-dawn sky during early July, a newly discovered comet named C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) should be visible with unaided eyes, and through binoculars and backyard telescopes. The comet is still relatively close to the sun, so it’s only visible for 30 to 45 minutes each morning after it rises - until it fades in to the brightening sky. Comets move across the sky – more rapidly when they are near perihelion.

This one is climbing daily and shifting to the left compared to the stars around it. On Tuesday morning, the comet will rise at about 3:30 a.m. local time (it varies depending on your latitude). It will be located about 15° to the celestial southeast of the very bright star Capella in Auriga. By Sunday, July 12, the comet will be rising about an hour earlier.

It will have moved to sit 19° to the celestial southeast of Capella. The earlier rise time will place the comet higher in a darker sky, making it easier to see – but it will also be diminishing in brightness every morning as it pulls away from the sun’s warmth. Look for a small, bright, fuzzy spot, possibly with an orange hue, and a fainter tail that extends upwards away from the sun.

NEOWISE will be closest to the Earth (64 million miles) on On July 22.  3 days later the comet will be 30 degrees up from the horizon in the evening.  July 30th & 31st NEOWISE will be north of Berenice's Hair (star cluster).

The Lowdown from Lowell

"When Lowell Observatory decided to build the new public $4M Giovale Open Deck Observatory (GODO) in Flagstaff, AZ, one of the issues we faced with installing a planned suite of six state-of-the–art telescopes from different manufacturers was training 20+ operators on multiple, different control systems.

We decided that we wanted the operator interface for all of the telescopes to be through SkySafari 6 Pro on iPads so that the operators could be trained on a single system and operate all of the different mounts.

We also worked closely with the development team at SkySafari as they provided a number of new capabilities for Lowell & our scopes that didn’t exist in SkySafari at the time.  These new functionalities have now been incorporated into a new public release of SkySafari 6 Pro.

Every single night our operators, in a matter of seconds can also look up answers to obscure questions posed by visitors about the object being viewed, share the iPad’s screen view with the visitor, pull up professional images of the targets for the visitors and show the object’s location in the Milky Way using the galactic view.

Visitors love the technology.

The SkySafari 6 Pro interface will allow Lowell Observatory’s public program to interact smoothly and quickly with an estimated 110,000-115,000 visitors in 2020 and as many as 200,000 by the end of the coming decade."
