Description

The comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) will be at its closest to the sun since the last ice age before it swings past Earth in February. Join us to observe the comet at Al Qudra Desert on the 4th of Feb 2023.

A recently discovered comet will soon make an appearance in the night sky for the first time in 50,000 years.

Discovered on March 2, 2022, by astronomers using the Zwicky Transient Facility’s wide-field survey camera at the Palomar Observatory in San Diego County, California, the comet will make its closest approach to the sun in the months of January and February.

Named C/2022 E3 (ZTF), the comet has an orbit around the sun that passes through the outer reaches of the solar system, which is why it’s taken such a long journey — and a long time — to swing by Earth again, according to The Planetary Society.
