From the 4th of February until March the 9th 2023 the Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) commonly referred to as 'The Green Comet' is set to make an appearance in the Southern Hemisphere.
The 'Green Comet' has an orbit around the Sun that passes through the outer reaches of the Solar System, this is why it has taken such a long time to pass by Earth.
It is around 42 million kilometres away, and the tail of the comet is around 96 million km long.
This comet is extremely rare because the last time it made an appearance was 50,000 years ago.
The Sabre-Toothed Tiger, Wooly Mammoth and Neanderthal Man were roaming the surface of the Earth when it last appear in the skies.
It has been in the Northern Hemisphere for some time and the best way we can view the 'Green Comet' is through a telescope.
We have listed below the best types of telescopes to view this once-in-a-lifetime rare event.
