Don’t Miss the Comet!

Attention, stargazers! Astronomers have discovered a new comet that is streaking through the night sky this summer. The comet is named, NEOWISE. It is a 4.5 billion-year old icy rock. NEOWISE will be most visible to the naked eye from now until next Thursday, July 23. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, as it won’t return to our solar system for 6,800 years! So, go out after sunset and check it out!
