On February 1st-2nd 2023, a comet will pass by earth and will be visible by the naked eye; This phenomenon has not happened in 10,000 years

On February 1st-2nd, a comet will pass by earth and will be visible by the naked eye. This phenomenon has not happened in 10,000 years.

At the start of 2023 #Earth will be visited by a newly discovered comet that may just be bright enough to be spotted with the naked eye.

The #comet, named C/2022 E3 (ZTF), is currently passing through the inner solar system. It will make its closest approach to the sun, or perihelion, on Jan. 12, and will then whip past Earth making its closest passage of our planet, its perigee, between Feb. 1 and Feb. 2.

If the comet continues to brighten as it currently is, it could be visible in dark skies with the naked eye. This is difficult to predict for comets, but even if C/2022 E3 (ZTF) does fade it should still be visible with binoculars or a telescope for a number of days around its close approach.
