Amateur radio enthusiasts often enjoy other hobbies including astronomy and astrophotography.
For the next few days we have the opportunity to see, Neowise, the brightest comet to come close to earth in 23 years. If the sky is clear there will be opportunities to see this giant snowball at varying times after sunset and before sunrise, no telescope required, however a good pair of binoculars can make it even more fun. The comet makes its closest pass to Earth on July 22, zipping by us at a mere 64 million miles away.
Here is a link to an app that will help you find the best viewing times.
Here is a link to an informative Washington Post article about Neowise.
If you do 'catch a comet' please let us know about it on the morning '8:35 on the 805' QSO or here on the website.
Next chance to see Neowise will be in 6,800 years.
