K2 Comet: Celestial bodies cannot be observed with the naked eye; telescopes or other instruments must be used. This Thursday, one of the furthest active comets from Earth will approach the planet at its closest point (15.July.2022). K2 Comet, which is in the constellation Ophiuchus, will pass by our planet at a distance of around 270 million kilometers.
Perihelion, or the comet’s closest approach to the Sun, will occur in December 2022.

K2 Comet Closest The Earth
K2 Comet won’t be visible to the unaided eye, but it will still be feasible to observe it, according to the National Observatory. According to Marçal Evangelista Santana, an observatory researcher, “It may be viewed with the use of tiny telescopes or even with telescopes, as long as the observer is in locations with less light pollution, that is, darker places.”
The physicist, who is a doctorate candidate in astronomy, claims that southern hemisphere spectators will have an advantage. The K2 comet will be visible for virtually the whole 14th night.
Even though the K2 comet was too far away for amateur astronomers to see it without a telescope, it was close enough to glance at.
Astronomer Stephen Peters used a stack of ten two-minute exposures to obtain the picture seen below from the United Kingdom.
Some observers reported having difficulty finding the target exactly or seeing it clearly. Moonlight made it more difficult to snap good images and heavy humidity resulted in a foggy lens, noted Twitter user HyenaDae.
An astronomer and a Twitter user named Starguy Mark tweeted a photo of the meteor with the caveat that the weather had not been optimal. (Read more:- Garena Free Fire Redeem Code)
