M31 is well placed
Wednesday 2nd Oct 2019
The Andromeda galaxy (M31) will be well placed for observation. It will reach its highest point in the sky at around midnight local time.
At a declination of +41°16', it is easiest to see from the northern hemisphere but cannot be seen from latitudes much south of 28°S.
From London, it will be visible all night. It will become visible at around 19:54 (BST) as the dusk sky fades, 38° above your eastern horizon. It will be lost to dawn twilight at around 05:46, 41° above your western horizon.
At magnitude 3.4, M31 is tricky to make out with the naked eye except from a dark site, but is visible through a pair of binoculars or small telescope.
The position of M31 is as follows:
|Object||Right Ascension||Declination||Constellation||Magnitude||Angular Size|
The coordinates above are given in J2000.0.
