A massive comet and supermoon will light up the night sky this week

An enormous comet is cruising through our solar system, which coincides with a so-called supermoon

The comet, named C/2017 K2 (PanSTARRS) and nicknamed K2, is estimated to be about 18 to 100 miles wide.

Astronomers from NASA expect it to make its closest approach towards Earth on July 13 with the most visibility on July 14

NASA says Asteroid is Approaching Earth

The K2 comet was first detected through the Hubble Space Telescope in May 2017 between the orbits of Saturn and Uranus—about 2.4 billion kilometers from the sun

The K2 comet is believed to have originated from the Oort Cloud, 

NASA experts speculate most long-period comets—meteors that take more than 200 years to complete their orbit around the sun
