Comet 2023

2023 will bring rare stargazing opportunities – from a green comet to a partial solar eclipse with a "ring of fire."

The first comet to light up the night sky since the Nowise comet in 2020 is approaching Earth.

Comet C/2022 E3, which orbits the sun every 50,000 years, will be closest to us next week.

Discovered last March by astronomers at the Zwicky Transient Facility at the Palomar Observatory in California.

Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) was calculated to orbit the sun every 50,000 years, meaning it last tore past our home planet in the stone age.

Astronomers armed with telescopes have captured stunning pictures of the comet in the past month.

Meteor showers and other celestial objects will also light up the night sky all year long.
