If you have a pair of binoculars, use them to locate the fuzzy comet.
Once you have closed in on NEOWISE, put your binoculars away and see if you can make out the comet’s tail with the naked eye.
The further up north you live the better your viewing options will be.
Astronomer Eddie Irizarry wrote in an article for EarthSky.org: “The good news is that – if the comet continues looking great – the view during the night of closest approach should be nice for many of us at temperate latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere.
“Although binoculars are required for the celestial visitor, it will be visible at the same time we see a beautiful Crescent (not too bright) Moon.”
