From Cambridge , NGC 3953 is visible in both the dusk and dawn skies. In the evening, it will become visible around 19:52 (EDT) as the dusk sky fades, 23° above your north-western horizon. It will then sink towards the horizon, becoming tricky to observe after 20:03 when it dips 22° above your north-western horizon. At 05:18, it will return to an altitude of 21° above your north-eastern horizon, and reach an altitude of 22° before fading from view as dawn breaks around 05:23.
