In Earth’s skies in January 2023, for the first time in 50,000 years, a ghostly object could be clearly seen by humans with the naked eye.
According to the sheet SpaceIt is Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF)will appear in Earth’s skies with a ghostly green color and is completely strange to modern people, because the last time humanity saw it was when other human species such as Neanderthals, Denisovans – cousins have disappeared. of us Homo sapiens – still roam the Earth.
According to NASA forecasts, This comet will come closest to the Sun on January 12will then pass through the Earth and return to the farthest reaches of the solar system.

If it maintains its current brightness, it can be seen with the naked eye for several days on the journey from the Sun to the Earth. Even when dimmed, C/2022 E3 (ZTF) can still be observed with binoculars and telescopes for several days around its journey to perihelion.
NASA says observers in the northern hemisphere will see it “friend” of extinct human species in the morning as it moves northwest throughout January; while observers in the southern hemisphere will see it clearly in early February.
The most favorable observation period in the northern hemisphere is January 21., when the Moon has retreated into darkness and the light of the comet is not attenuated. Of course, you should pray for good weather, as comets can be hidden by thick clouds.
The place to find it is Constellation of Camelopardalis (Loc Leopard) but this seemed to have slipped during the visit.
This comet has a period of up to 50,000 years, so the people who often see it are not our young species but the Neanderthals or Denisovans, who appeared up to 800,000 years ago and up to 30,000-50. 000 years ago, he disappeared.
The C/2022 E3 (ZTF) code shows that it was not actually confirmed by science until 2022. Initially, it was thought to be an asteroid in the orbit of Jupiter, but it quickly turned out to be a brightening comet, a sign of sublimation. when comets gradually approach the Sun.
