Known as Comet NEOWISE (short for Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer—phew, that’s a mouthful!), this new comet has already become known for its spectacular nighttime display. If you have a free night in the upcoming days, definitely seek out a dark place to witness this brilliant celestial event.
