Live footage of the "Green Comet" C/2022 E3 (ZTF)

Toninght may be the last chance for star-gazers to catch a glimpse of the green comet, known as C/2022 E3 (ZTF), as it travels through the solar system.

Tonight is probably the last chance for star-gazers in the US to get a good look at the green comet. So how can you give yourself the best chance of seeing it with your own eyes?
