The comet passing in front of the Earth, offering a spectacular spectacle – News 24 – CAMEROON MAGAZINE – CAMEROON INFO

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (AP) – A newly discovered comet passes in front of Earth, providing a breathtaking night spectacle after buzzing the sun and widening its tail.

Comet Neowise swept Mercury’s orbit a week ago. Its immediate proximity to the sun burned the dust and gas on its surface and created an even larger tail of debris. Now the comet is heading for us, with the closest approach in two weeks.

Scientists involved in the mission said the comet is approximately 5 km in diameter. Its core is covered with soot which dates back to the origin of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago.

The comet will be visible worldwide until mid-August, when it travels to the outer solar system. Although visible to the naked eye in a dark sky with little to no light pollution, binoculars are needed to see the long tail, according to NASA.

NASA’s Bob Behnken shared a spectacular photo of the comet on social media last Thursday, showing Central Asia in the background and the space station in the foreground.
