"After hiding behind the sun during the winter months, the Milky Way made its grand return to the morning sky in February. It is visible just before dawn from places with dark, clear skies. In the coming months, it will begin to rise higher in the sky, becoming visible earlier every morning until midsummer, when peak Milky Way viewing season arrives. "

Comet NEOWISE? Yeah, I've heard of that as well. My wife saw it, but I missed it as I was taking a piss.
