Bode's galaxy (M81, NGC 3031) in Ursa Major
will be well placed for observation,
culminating at around midnight local time.
At magnitude 7.9, M81 is
quite faint, and certainly not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed through a pair of binoculars or small telescope.
At a declination of +69°04' , it is seen to best advantage in the northern hemisphere; in fact, it is unobservable from latitudes much south of 0°S.
The precise position of M81 is as follows:
The coordinates above are given in J2000.0.
The circumstances of this event were computed from the DE405
ephemeris published by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
The position of M81 was taken from the NGC2000.0
