How to see comet E1 ATLAS high in the night sky in July near the Little Dipper

A relatively newly discovered comet makes for a tantalizing skywatching target this summer.

Comet C/2023 E1 ATLAS was discovered in March 2023 by the Asteroid Terrestrial-Impact Last Alert System (ATLAS), funded by NASA and operated by the University of Hawaii. This array of four telescopes spread across Hawaii, Chile and South Africa scans the sky for near-Earth objects to warn of any potential danger heading for Earth.
