Comet seen in Latvian skies

A bright comet can be observed in the sky above Latvia, the Latvian Astronomy Society (LAB) and company StarSpace said on July 13.

It has been more than 20 years since a bright comet has been observed in the Latvian sky.

Until the end of July, the comet NEOWISE in Latvia will be visible throughout the night in the northwest, north and north-east of the sky where it is currently located in the Ursa Major (Great Bear) constellation.

As the sky darkens, from midnight to about 3:30 in the morning, the comet can be seen best. It should be noted that silver clouds are generally visible on the north side of the sky during the nights of July, which may interfere with the observations.
