Passing Comet Visible With Naked Eye This Week

Weather Headlines

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Comet C/2020 F3, or NEOWISE, is still visible in the sky, but best viewing is during the evening.

The comet has survived its closet approach in the orbit around the sun. Because of it surviving and being that close, it has helped brighten its appearance in the sky.


This, you may still be able to see the comet over Arkansas, but may be somewhat difficult to see.

  • Look low on the north-northeast horizon. The clearer the view of the north-northwest horizon, the better
  • The best time to view the comet will be during the evening hours.
  • Stay away from heavy light pollution sources. If you live south and west of a large city (Little Rock), you will have some difficulty viewing the comet. The comet will be close to the horizon, making it more difficult to see
