Comet Nishimura will be visible in the sky tonight 12th sept will come again after 437 years

Tonight the sky is going to witness an event which happens once in 437 years. A comet named Nishimura will reach closest to Earth tonight. The special thing is that this comet was discovered for the first time last month. There is a hope of seeing it today i.e. on 12th September and 13th September. Next time this opportunity will come after 437 years. No kind of telescope is required to see the comet. It can be seen with the naked eye, provided there is minimal pollution in the place you are. The sky should be clear and there should be little light.

Astronomers believe that Nishimura originated in the Oort cloud located in the far reaches of our solar system. It is considered to be an area of ​​many icy objects. The scientific name of Nishimura Comet is C/2023 P1. While passing through the Earth, it will pass close to the Sun on September 17.

The best time to witness such events is from sunset to sunrise. The deeper and darker the night, the greater the chances of seeing the comet and its brightness.

News agency AP reports that the best time to see the comet is about 90 minutes before sunrise. It can be seen even with the naked eye, but if you have a telescope, the experience will be even better.

The comet is named after amateur astronomer Hideo Nishimura. He was the one who discovered it last month. It is said that this comet last visited our planet in the 1500s. Next time it will be seen in the year 2450. There is also a possibility that when it gets closer to the Sun, it may disappear completely due to its heat. If this happens, Comet Nishimura will never be seen again.
