It may be on the brightest comets we've seen in years.
It's one of the few "naked-eye comets" of the 21st century, meaning it can be seen without a telescope. By mid-July, the comet will be visible at dusk in the northwest horizon.
The icy, near-earth object, whose official name is Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE, closely approached the sun on July 3 and will pass by Earth at a distance of 64 million miles on its route back to the outer parts of the solar system this month, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
A spectacular image was captured of NEOWISE by the Parker Solar Probe on July 5. NASA scientists estimate it to be about three miles wide.
"They're collections of rock and dust, all bound together with frozen ices and gases", he said.
"The lower tail, which appears broad and fuzzy, is the dust tail of comet NEOWISE - created when dust lifts off the surface of the comet's nucleus and trails behind the comet in its orbit".
The tail of the comet will fan out away from the sun.
Comet Neowise swept within Mercury's orbit a week ago.
Astronomer John Bortle said the comet's increase in brightness could mean the sun's heat has reached volatile pockets near the nucleus.
"Observers all over the world are racing to see the natural fireworks display before the comet speeds away into the depths of space", NASA said in a statement.
A video from the ISS of Comet Neowise rising above the Earth has also been released on YouTube.
"As soon as we saw how close it would come to the sun, we had hopes that it would put on a good show", University of Arizona astrophysicist Amy Mainzer, the principal investigator for NASA's Neowise mission, told NBC News.
