The Comet is visible in India since July 14 onwards, and will continue to remain so for next two weeks in the clear skies. Even after that, with special equipment such as binoculars or basic telescopes, the NEOWISE will remain visible from Indian skies.

“A far better viewing perspective will be available in the evening sky starting around July 14, when it will appear low in the northwest sky (20 degrees from the horizon) for around 20 minutes. In the evenings to follow, the comet will rapidly climb higher in the sky and will be visible for a longer period,” Dr Shubhendu Patnaik, deputy director of Pathani Samanta Planetarium in Odisha’s Bhubaneswar., told ANI.
