When European astronomers woke up this morning to photograph Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3), they saw something they didn’t expect.

The sunrise comet was surrounded by noctilucent clouds.

It was a rare morning, indeed.

Comet Neowise

On July 3rd, Comet NEOWISE flew past the sun near the orbit of Mercury. Some astronomers feared the comet might dissolve. Instead, it held together and became bright enough to see in morning twilight (currently at magnitude +2).

As July unfolds, Comet NEOWISE will move into progressively darker skies, further improving its visibility.

It will remain a morning comet for the next ~week, then shift mid-month to evening skies where casual star gazers can see it without waking at the crack of dawn.

They might see some noctilucent clouds, too.

If you are interested in spotting the comet in the morning or in the night sky, here are some maps: July 7, July 8, July 9, July 10, July 11, July 12, July 13, July 14, July 15.

Comets in ancient cultures

Comets have inspired dread, fear, and awe in many different cultures and societies around the world and throughout time. They have been branded with such titles as “the Harbinger of Doom” and “the Menace of the Universe.” They have been regarded both as omens of disaster and messengers of the gods. Why is it that comets are some of the most feared and venerated objects in the night sky? Why did so many cultures cringe at the sight of a comet?

Noctilucent clouds were first noticed in the mid-19th century after the eruption of super-volcano Krakatoa. Volcanic ash spread through the atmosphere, painting vivid sunsets that mesmerized observers all around the world.

That was when the NLCs appeared. At first people thought they must be some side-effect of the volcano, but long after Krakatoa’s ash settled the noctilucent clouds remained.

So when the Harbinger of Doom meets mysterious clouds high in the atmosphere, there is really something weird and rare going on! Be ready!

  1. God constantly speaks to His children also through signs in the starry sky. Every phenomenon in the sky has its own spiritual significance, this applies even to the weakest comet.
    Imagine that through the same point in the constellation od the Desired by All Nations (= Coma, above Virgo) two comets will pass 8 days apart: C / 2019 U6 (LEMMON) on July 29, 2020 that is on Saint Martha’s day, while C / 2020 F3 (NEOWISE) on August 8, that is, on the day of Saints Dominic and Myron Taumaturg.
    Their trajectories cross, but there will be a luminous cross there, I don’t know.
    The meeting place (constellation Coma) is important https://www.sciencephoto.com/media/89660/view, because Paraclete is the Desired. NEOWISE (= the New Wise) will come into Perihelium on July 3, the day of Saint Thomas the Apostle, or the Twin (Didimos).

    LEMMON (= The Friend) will be in perihelium on June 18/19, that is on the day of Saints Gervase and Protase, saint Twins, because Paraclete is the spiritual twin of our Lord Jesus. Of this pair of Protase (= The First) is Jesus Christ, and Gervase (= The Spearman) is the anointed Paraclete.
    All nations of the world are waiting for Paraclete – this will be the third (middle) coming of Christ according to the teaching of Saint Bernard of Clairvoux.
    There are more details to discuss here (date and place of discovery, date perigeum, trajectory in connection with the saints of the day, etc. etc.), but now remember the key information: NEOWISE – comet of Saint Thomas, the Twin, Paraclete ; LEMMON – comet of the Twins, God’s Sons.
