"In the meantime, the best time to spot the comet is about 80 minutes before dawn across the northeastern horizon. NEOWISE will reach its highest point in the sky around July 11. Then, around July 12 to 15, the comet will be visible 80 minutes after dusk over the northwestern horizon. While we have a pretty good view on Earth, astronauts aboard the International Space Station have a front-row seat."

Careful observers will notice a cloaked spaceship travelling in the comets tail, but only if they're wearing new Nike running shoes. wink.gif

My grandson sent me a picture he took last night. I-phone through telescope, I suspect, but he got it.

Easily visible- naked eye - just slightly west of North in  the Methow, about 11.00.
About 10-15 deg. above horizon.
Apparently supposed to be higher in the sky on the next few nights.
