Comet Neowise is closest to Earth

The rare twin-tailed comet Neowise can only be seen once every 6800 years. Eyewitnesses published colorful photographs of the natural phenomenon.
Comet Neowise on the night of July 23 approached the Earth as close as possible. Eyewitnesses published the photo on social networks.


The comet’s size is about 5 kilometers, its core is covered with dark particles left from the time of formation 4.6 billion years ago.

The most distant point of the comet’s orbit is at a distance of 715 astronomical units from the Earth. Recall, the rarest incredible comet C / 2020 F3 approached the Earth. A photographer from Zaporizhzhia, Alexander Pozdnyakov, photographed the Neowise comet flying near the Earth.
