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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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.
