You Still Have Time To See The Newly-Discovered Neowise Comet In The New Mexico Skies This Week

In the last few days, a newly-discovered comet has been taking over the skies and social media feeds. Dubbed the Neowise comet, it first graced skies in the early morning hours earlier this month but can now be seen shortly after sunset right here in New Mexico.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

If you’re not quite sure where to head, we recommend checking out one of New Mexico’s certified International Dark-Sky Places. These locations are overwhelmingly free of light pollution, meaning you’ll have a spectacular view of the comet.
