From Ashburn , NGC 6670 is visible in both the dusk and dawn skies. In the evening, it will become visible at around 18:18 (EST) as the dusk sky fades, 23° above your north-western horizon. It will then sink towards the horizon, becoming tricky to observe after 18:36 when it dips 21° above your north-western horizon. At 03:08, it will return to an altitude of 21° above your north-eastern horizon, and reach an altitude of 42° before fading from view as dawn breaks at around 06:16.
