Comet NEOWISE And Meteor Fireball Seen In Trinidad Skies - 15 Jul 2020
A shiny celestial beauty, Comet Neowise, which began showing in the night skies
earlier this month will appear again tonight in the Humboldt heavens. Start
checking about 9:30 p.m. for the best viewing. Then the comet will set about
12:43 a.m., but for those early risers (or those willing to stay up for hours),
it will appear again about 2:44 a.m. Look for the frozen ball of gases, rocks
and dust under the Big Dipper to the northwest.
According to photographer David Wilson who captured the image above, tonight the
comet will be a little higher in the sky than shown in the photo above. "If you
can stay up until it's really dark, you'll see a double tail on it," he told us.
According to NASA, the glowing head and tail is formed from gasses and dust
released when the comet is heated up as it passes our sun.
