Around 6 July 2022, the comet will cross the celestial equator, and then around 14 July 2022, it will pass 1.8 AU (270 million km) from Earth and shining at 7.0 magnitude at that time.[10][4] It will reach perihelion around 19 December 2022, close to the orbit of Mars, and will possibly be visible to naked eye at 6.0 magnitude.[3][4][b].
