Comet SWAN location: Where is the comet now?

The comet made its closest pass of Earth on the night of May 12 to May 13, passing within 0.56au, which is slightly more than half the distance to the Sun.

The comet should be most visible until about May 27, by which point the comet will fly within 40 million miles of the Sun.

According to TheSkyLive.com on May 15, the comet is cutting across the constellation Triangulum.

Triangulum, or The Triangle, is a small constellation to the north of the celestial equator.

Comet SWAN itself will be best seen from the Southern Hemisphere but you will have a chance to spot it in the predawn hours in the UK.
