A newly discovered comet C/2020 F3, also known as Neowise, which has been spotted from several parts of the world, will now be visible in India.
Comet Neowise will be clearly visible in the north-western sky for Indian stargazers from Tuesday onwards, said Deputy Director of Pathani Samanta Planetarium in Odisha.
Last month, India witnessed the annular “Ring of Fire” eclipse and it seems like we’ve got more skywatching to do.
The newly discovered Comet Neowise or C/20202 F3 has been visible from a large part of the northern hemisphere and will start showing up in Northern India from today. It is the brightest comet that has graced our skies in decades and will not be seen again for another 6,000 years.
The rare comet will be visible after sunset for around 20 minutes. It can be spotted every day from July 14 for the next 20 days, the planetarium head said.
