M94 is well placed

2014 Apr 5

M94, a spiral galaxy in Canes Venatici, will be well placed for observation, culminating at around midnight local time.

At magnitude 9.0, M94 is quite faint, and certainly not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed through a pair of binoculars or small telescope.

At a declination of +41°07′ , it is seen to best advantage in the northern hemisphere.
