Hello my fellow  clear sky apostles

Great opportunity to see Comet Neowise in NE USA this evening as high pressure is dominant and it should be clear around the time you'll be able to see him.

From mid lattitudes, look about 15-20 degrees below Merak, the bottom corner star of the Big Dipper (or The Plough as us Brits call it)  

This article explains better than I can.

Don't forget, once you've observed Neowise, turn to the SE and Saturn & Jupiter should be blazing away for you :) That's what i'll be doing!! 

I'll also be testing my new Tele Vuie Delos eyepieces but will be testing them in Cassie because Cubble is still stuck in a backordered Universe somewhere.

Enjoy your evening and enjoy this thrilling comet! 😍
