From Ashburn , NGC 7245 is visible in both the dusk and dawn skies. In the evening, it will become visible at around 18:50 (EST) as the dusk sky fades, 29° above your north-western horizon. It will then sink towards the horizon, becoming tricky to observe after 19:53 when it dips 21° above your north-western horizon. At 05:32, it will return to an altitude of 21° above your north-eastern horizon, and reach an altitude of 24° before fading from view as dawn breaks at around 05:57.
