From Cambridge , NGC 7031 is visible in both the dusk and dawn skies. In the evening, it will become visible around 17:55 (EST) as the dusk sky fades, 39° above your north-western horizon. It will then sink towards the horizon, becoming tricky to observe after 20:04 when it dips 21° above your north-western horizon. At 05:36, 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 around 05:58.
