Comet Neowise

Does anyone know if this spectacular comet will be visible in the southern hemisphere?

I have seen lots of photos of it and it seems very bright compared to the usual run of weak comets.

Greg.

It should be in our evening sky at the end of the month and into August, barring break-ups, etc.

Have a look at Southern Comets website for a map applicable for us.

Will be visible late in the month, low in th NW and probably fading compared to the show it is putting on for the northern hemisphere currently.

The comet should be visible now! I made a 4 minute video here: https://youtu.be/4IQnn-o6yp4 , with a link to a finder chart. It's been looking amazing from NL, where I am!
