TAIPEI (The China Post) — Today is your last chance to see Comet NEOWISE after it was spotted a day earlier, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB, 中央氣象局) said.

Cheng Chen-feng (鄭振豐), a specialist at the CWB, managed to capture a beautiful image of the comet, which is also known as C/2020 F3 — the brightest comet to be seen in Taiwan sky for 23 years.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) discovered Comet NEOWISE through an infrared telescope on March 27.

The CWB said that you will also be able to see the comet if you stare towards the Northeast direction early Saturday morning.

If you miss this rare opportunity, you will have to wait until late July to have an opportunity to see such a cool sight again.
