Comet Neowise viewing tonight

LA Times:
Comet NEOWISE will come closest to Earth after sunset tonight, passing at a safe distance of 64 million miles. By the end of July, it will fade as it moves away from the sun and Earth, heading back to remote parts of the solar system.

Here are some tips to help you find it in the night sky before it vanishes.

Comet NEOWISE is so bright that it can be seen with the naked eye, but that doesn’t mean you’ll get a perfect view. Looking up from a dark place away from city lights about 90 minutes after sunset, “it looks like a fuzzy star with a little bit of a tail,” according to Space.com. Add a pair of binoculars or a small telescope, and the comet and its tail will be easier to spot.
Sounds like it's in the northwestern sky after sunset, but it's been cloudy at the coast the last few evenings. So you probably want to head inland a little bit.

  1. The other night, I saw the comet. It was a bit orange, and looked like it was flaming out. I thought they were made of ice, but this was gassy. Then I realized I wasn't looking in the northwestern sky, but rather at Fox News, and it wasn't a comet, but rather our orange turd president.

    2. I actually found 5:44 to be quite funny. You, on the other hand, are not aware that the caps lock button on your keyboard, much like your mother, can be turned both on, and off.

    1. Right, grammar doesn't matter and 2+2=5.

    2. 8:13 - The word is spelled jeez, not geeze.

      When there is a red, squiggly line under a word, that means the word is spelled incorrect.

    3. The adverb would be "incorrectly," 12:14.

  6. 12:14 - Geez or Geeze is perfectly fine. Its slang, dipshit. Get a life or die grandma. You too 9:36. BTW - your answer to the math is wrong like most things in your life.

    Another BTW- I heard TP is running out again. You better order a ton more on Amazon but do not leave your house. You will get COVID.

    2. 11:41- Back at you. You assumed I didn't get the point. My impression of you is a turd brain. Watch out, COVID is coming for you Janet.

    3. 8:45 Stop posting. You're too dumb. Nobody cares about what's going on in your shriveled brain.

  7. Damn... good point. Well we all know the bleeding hearts always have different levels of acceptance. I call it prejudice. they call it intelligence. Regardless. Your point is spot on.

  8. Well hold on. Not all blacks. and that is definately racist. There are plenty of whites that can not speak english. From Boston, Texas, West Virgin, Hawaii, puerto rico, and all of the south.

    there are many educated and articulate black people. Bottom line is skin color or origin make no difference and if you judge someone on skin color or Origen than you are prejudice.

  9. And there it is 10:43. I DID NOT write "all blacks".
    And yes, there are plenty of whites that speak marble mouth as well. Marble mouth is when you place marbles in your mouth and attempt to speak.
    Notice how you went right into the word "racist". This is the chink in your armor when it comes to this debate. Because I point out a large percentage of a group can barley utter the English language, someone like you goes right to the escape word of racist. That is what the left does, don't be one of them.
    If I had stated the same thing about swamp whites from Luzzziana, would you have referred to that as racist?
    Well? Would you?

  10. OK. I see your point. Thanks. Its more appropriate to be calling someone prejudice because it really has nothing to do with the race or color of skin. I get it. The bleeding liberals are big time prejudice in the fact that that anyone that is not under their brainwash that socialism with an elite level of leaders is the superior Government model is a lower form of a citizen. The fact is most people are prejudice to some degree and everyone is constantly judging each other, no matter what is the bible, or Koran,Tripitaka, or Vedas.
