( 07/11/20 *CONFIRMED THIS IS NEOWISE* see below ) – Video and pictures of a comet spotted over the Mojave Desert 07/05/2020. At the time we published this episode, we didn’t know about comet NEOWISE which was discovered 03/27/2020 by the NEOWISE Instrument. The comet was headed towards Mercury and the Sun. In this episode, we identified this comet as comet SWAN.
Below in the “UPDATES” you can walk with us through this process of identification.

UPDATE: 07-11-2020: We have received confirmation from Cory Schmitz (https://twitter.com/TheAstroShake) that this was comet NEOWISE. It had moved behind the Sun on July 03, 2020, and emerged around the time we filmed the comet over the Mojave Desert. The comet had increased in magnitude. This episode contains some of the first pictures and video of NEOWISE after it emerged from behind the Sun.
UPDATE 07-10-2020: Comet NEOWISE has been discovered with the last 9 days. Unfortunately, we did not know this, and the comet in this video may be NEOWISE. WE DO NOT KNOW NOW IF THIS WAS INDEED COMET SWAN AS WE HAD NO INFORMATION ABOUT A NEWLY DISCOVERED COMET.
