 Comet C/2020 F3 Neowise in Alberta's Sky
In case you missed the info, was a comet visible in our night sky near the Auriga constellation, relatively low above the horizon (see attached photo for approximate location marked with a red x). It is so bright that it is visible with the naked eye (but with binoculars, it's even better). It ot be back before 6,800 years. Pictures courtesy of Frederique Pivot
