Comet NEOWISE Sightings Across T&T

Comet NEOWISE has been spotted in T&T’s skies for the first time on Saturday 18th July 2020 by several sky gazers. This comet will stick around nearly every night through the end of July, with peak visibility approximately 30 minutes sunset.

Sunset across T&T this week will occur at 6:31 PM this week, so just after 7:00 PM would be the best time to look across our northwestern night sky, regardless of where you live.

Follow below every night for photos from our local sky gazers and astrophotographers for sightings of the once in 6,766-year event.
