A new comet has been discovered in the constellation Draco, located at a distance of 6 AU. from the earth. Calculations of the orbit showed that it is strongly elongated, and after a while the comet will be at a minimum distance (0.5 AU) from the Sun and become visible to the naked eye. In which hemisphere of the Earth will it be best seen at this time?

In the constellation Draco is the north pole of the ecliptic. Still far from the Sun and the Earth, the comet was located in space much north of the plane of the ecliptic. But the Sun is in the focus of the ellipse – the comet’s orbit, therefore, during the perihelion period, the comet will descend to the south of the ecliptic plane and will be better seen in the southern hemisphere of the Earth, regardless of the position of the Earth itself in orbit.
