Night sky alert!!!!
Starting July 13 Comet Neowise becomes evening visible just after sunset and it may still be naked eye visible or better!!!
With its location to the Big Dipper it should be easy to locate.

I've never seen a comet with the naked eye before hoping the light pollution where I live won't ruin it... sounds like an excuse to go camping....

Comet Neowise is now visible in the evening skies!!!
Low to the horizon right now but it will gain height in the skies.
Check out the sky maps. Should be easy to find because of its proximity to the Big dipper.
