How to watch the “green comet” as it approaches its closest point in 50,000 years

Green comet Imaging in the morning sky is scheduled for its closest approach to Earth early next month.

Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) was first spotted in March last year, when it was already within the orbit of Jupiter. It is said to be making its closest approach 50,000 years ago.

NASA has stated that it will make its closest approach to our planet on February 2.

If this comet in its current direction continues to brighten, it should be easily visible with a Small telescope or binoculars.
