Have you seen Comet NEOWISE yet?

The brightest comet in nearly 25 years has been visible to the naked eye for several days - and will remain so until mid-August.

After the sun sets, look to the north. You may be able to spot a comet with the naked eye. You need clear sky to see it and light pollution can make things even more challenging. You also want to have a good view of the horizon, free of tall buildings or trees.

If you're in Prague, find a hill that has less light and obstructions. The comet can, for example, be seen from the Vítkov hill. When you're there, you can also admire a giant statue of the Czech military leader Jan Žižka which recently celebrated its 70th birthday. We wrote about it HERE.
