How long has Comet Neowise been hovering in the late night sky? Has it been a few years? Only a year? For millennia, comets have been interpreted as bringing bad luck and doom. Their appearance was never welcomed and were considered the UFOs of early humanity. We know better now, but with everything going on, is it so far fetched that this beautiful visitor is a portent in disguise? Safe travels Neowise, see you in 6,600 years. You can still catch it in the late night sky this month under the Big Dipper in the NW and in the NE after 1am. It will make it’s closest approach to Earth around 7/22 before it continues its journey around the sun.
