To see the comet, look to the northwest sky in the evenings after sunset through the 23rd day of July. Look below the Big Dipper.

Mainly clear skies are in the forecast Friday and Saturday nights in West Virginia giving stargazers a great view to see the astronomical wonder with the help of binoculars or a small telescope.
