Since the beginning of September, the world has been revolutionized by the arrival of the green comet Nishimura this impressive phenomenon that was discovered by chance on its way to the sun a month ago.
At this point it would complete its orbit and return from its previous sighting, as it has about 430 to 440 years to complete this journey. The previous visit took place around 1590, when the telescope had not yet been invented.
Between September 15th and 18th It was at its closest point to the Sun (perihelion), but in any case there is a chance of seeing it until the 25th, ideally with the help of binoculars, around 7:45 p.m.
- It is necessary that the person is in a place without artificial lighting and in the darkest possible environment.
- Make sure the horizon to the east is clear and there are no obstructions in the sky.
- The user must examine their surroundings carefully to get a better view by using binoculars with a magnification of 7 or 10.
