The green comet passes Earth

A powerful green comet is on its way to cross Earth.

This is the first time in 50,000 years that this comet has passed us, he writes BBC.

And if you’re lucky, you may see the green light in the night sky in the coming weeks.

Comets are notoriously unpredictable, but if these comets continue to stay strong, they will be easy to spot, he writes. NASA on its website.

– Using binoculars

Astrophysicist and press liaison with the Norwegian Astronomical Society, Tor Einar Aslesen is looking forward to searching for the comet.

– It’s relatively unique with that green, he says.

The comet made its closest approach to Earth on February 1, but you can actually look for it.

Aslesen says that the comet will appear near the pole star. He is the strongest star of “Little Bear”.

“If you have prism or hunting binoculars, you can look for a small green dot,” says Aslesen.

If it is clear and very dark, you may be able to see it with the naked eye as well.

Green tail

The comet has been named “C/2022 E3 (ZTF)”. It stands out among the comets with its green tail.

Aslesen explains that the strong green color comes from the comet’s exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun.

The tail itself can be difficult to identify with binoculars. Here, the right telescope does the trick.

And if you have good photography skills, you can try taking pictures of the rare comet as well. It is, after all, 50,000 years until she returns.

– You could try taking a picture of her with a telephoto lens. If you have a long exposure, you should be able to take a picture of the tail as well.
