Comet Neowise is said to be the brightest comet since Comet Hale-Bopp in 1997.  According to Space.com what makes Neowise so spectacular is that it won't be visible for another 6,800 years.   If you want to see it yourself, you have limited time to do so. According to a graphic on Space.com, it looks like July 23rd is the last chance to see Comet Neowise.  They also said the best time to see the comet is just after sunset. You'll want to look to the northwest just under the Big Dipper constellation.
