Watch green comet near Mars Saturday with free telescope webcast

The green comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) has a few more chances to wow skywatchers before it potentially leaves the solar system.

The comet is primed for early evening viewing right now, appearing close to the Auriga and Taurus constellations throughout early February. On Thursday (Feb. 9), the comet will begin approaching Mars in the night sky, beside which it will remain for the next four or five nights. If you haven’t gotten out to observe the comet with binoculars or a telescope yet, this week could offer a prime opportunity, as Mars can make for an easy-to-find reference point in the sky.
