A rare comet is passing by Earth: How to watch it

The NEOWISE comet cruised just inside Mercury’s orbit on July 3. This very close passage by the Sun is cooking the comet’s outermost layers, causing gas and dust to erupt off the icy surface and creating a large tail of debris. And yet the comet has managed to survive this intense roasting which is exciting to watch. It will be visible to the naked eye starting July 14.
