Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) has been intriguing northern sky watchers all summer and will continue to do so for a bit longer as it travels through the “paws” of Ursa Major. It became glorious as a morning object for amateur astronomers in June, but, after transitioned to the evening sky in July, it has become better appreciated by the general public.

 

The comet is closest to Earth tonight, July 22, as it makes its evening appearance for the east coast of North America. This will happen at 9:14 pm EDT with the comet 0.692 AU from the Earth at a predicted 3.3 magnitude and elongation (angle) from the Sun of 37.6°.  At this time it will be 0.630 AU from the Sun as it approaches the orbit of Venus (0.723 AU) during its outbound voyage from our star.
