The estimates suggest that the next time you can see this comet is in the year 8786.

Now in another treat for the sky gazers, four planets will be visible in the sky in Telangana's capital city Hyderabad on July 18 (tonight).

What is more interesting is the fact that you would not need any equipment to view this.

Speaking to CNET, he said, "Step outside early in the morning, at least an hour before sunrise", Hunt said.

Mercury and Venus will appear 45 minutes before sunrise from the east. Mars will shine high and bright from the southeast, and Jupiter and Saturn will set from the southwest. It should look slightly reddish and won't twinkle like a star. "To your eyes, they won't look like the photos made by spacecraft, just overly bright stars". Brilliant Venus is low in the east-northeast.

"Usually they're more spread out", Dr. Laura Danly, curator at Griffith Observatory, told GMA. Mars will sit at the top of the curve, and closer to the horizon, you can spot Jupiter and Saturn.

The phenomenon will be visible in both the northern and southern hemispheres.

"A binocular may help finding the moon, Mercury, and Jupiter", said Jeffrey Hunt an astronomy educator on his blog, adding that after July 19, the five planets are in the sky without the moon. And if you point the binoculars at Jupiter, the four Galilean moons Callisto, Io, Europa and Ganymede should also be visible.

Hunt said that Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are also in the sky between Venus and Jupiter, but a telescope is needed to spot the trio.

IBTimes reported that the planets and the moon are likely to appear in the sky around an hour before sunrise on Sunday. That means that this month, Earth is as close to Jupiter and Saturn as it will get all year, making them brighter than usual and easy to spot all night, per Bruce McClure and Deborah Byrd for a EarthSky.
