From Seattle , NGC 3631 is visible in both the dusk and dawn skies. In the evening, it will become visible around 20:24 (PDT) as the dusk sky fades, 23° above your north-western horizon. It will then sink towards the horizon, becoming tricky to observe after 20:42 when it dips 21° above your north-western horizon. At 04:23, it will return to an altitude of 21° above your north-eastern horizon, and reach an altitude of 29° before fading from view as dawn breaks around 05:39.
