Catch The Bright, Newly-Discovered NEOWISE Comet Streaking In The Sky Above Utah This Week
If you look to the heavens this week, you might catch a glimpse of a bright comet streaking across the sky above Utah. The NEOWISE Comet was recently discovered, thanks to a telescope built right here in Utah, and you’re going to want to see it now because it won’t be visible again during your lifetime.
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/
