On Jan. 12, the comet will reach its perihelion (or its closest point to the sun), and Feb. 2, the comet will only be about 26 million miles from Earth.
The last time the comet passed through our solar system was a little more than 50,000 years ago, making this a once-in-a-civilization sight.
According to NASA, if the comet continues to brighten, it should be visible with the naked eye.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the comet will be visible in the mornings toward the northwest. In February, it will move below the horizon and become visible in the Southern Hemisphere, according to NASA.
NASA also recommends binoculars or a telescope to get the best view of the comet.
