Comet NEOWISE C/2020 F3 looks like it might put on an interesting show in July/August! Perihelion is on July 3, 2020 where the comet could reach 2nd or 3rd magnitude (well within the realm of naked eye visibility). Video (created using Starry Night Pro 8) shows Winnipeg visibility at 10:30pm each night. Couldn’t figure out how to put a date on the video tho.
