A few kilometers long circle of light seems to revolve around the earth. This rare sight has been visible after sunset for 20 minutes every day since July 14. People from different parts of the world are expressing surprise at this.

It’s basically a comet – whose name is C/2020 F3, however, its’ costume name given ‘Neowise’. This is shining daily after the sunset on the north-west sky and can be seen for more than two weeks.

Besides, the NASA scientists say this comet “won’t be back for 6800 years.” 

It is known that if the sky is clear, then this rare scene will be seen in the country’s sky today.

Scientists say telescopes are usually needed to view such scenes. But it can be seen with the naked eye. However, the scene can be seen more clearly with a telescope.

Let’s take a look at some scenes taken from different countries:
