NEOWISE12x18P

Comet NEOWISE was discovered on March 27th, 2020. Comets are made up of ice, rock, and dust. These objects orbit the sun, and as they slip closer to the sun most comets heat up and start streaming two tails, one made of dust and gas and an "ion tail" made of electrically-charged gas molecules, or ions. There is "about 13 million Olympic swimming pools of water," in Comet NEOWISE, Emily Kramer, a science team co-investigator forNASA's NEOWISE at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. NEOWISE is about 3 miles in diameter and travels around 144,00mph. Even with this tremendous speed, NEOWISE won't return to our view for another 6,800 years. Until then, you can view this comet everyday if you want ;)
