From Ashburn , IC 1442 is visible in both the dusk and dawn skies. In the evening, it will become visible around 19:01 (EST) as the dusk sky fades, 23° above your north-western horizon. It will then sink towards the horizon, becoming tricky to observe after 19:15 when it dips 21° above your north-western horizon. At 04:58, it will return to an altitude of 21° above your north-eastern horizon, and reach an altitude of 27° before fading from view as dawn breaks around 05:46.
