Green Comet Approaches Earth… Returns After 50,000 Years

NASA officials said the ice guest was first spotted in March 2022 orbiting Jupiter.

While residents of the Northern Hemisphere can see the comet through binoculars as a small green glow, scientists noted that on February 2, a celestial body will be at its closest point to Earth.

It was recorded that the long-awaited star made its closest passage to the Sun on January 12.

According to BBC News, NASA said in a statement about the visit: “Comets have been notorious for their unpredictability. But if it continues to shine like this, it will be easy to see it.”

The name of the sky, documented as C/2022 E3 (ZTF), will be 42 million kilometers from Earth on February 2.

Dan Bartlett, a retired science teacher and astrophotographer, captured the comet from his cabin near California’s Yosemite National Park.
