*** Comet C/2020 F3 Neowise in Alberta's Sky
In case you missed the info, was a comet visible in our night sky (roughly between 11pm and 4am) 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), even in the city with all the light pollution. It will still be visible until August, but its brightness will decrease over time; and it will not be back before 6,800 years. -Pictures courtesy of Frederique Pivot
