M94, a spiral galaxy in Canes Venatici will be well placed for observation. It will reach its highest point in the sky at around midnight local time.

From London, it will be visible all night. It will become visible at around 21:01 (BST) as the dusk sky fades, 48° above your eastern horizon. It will be lost to dawn twilight at around 05:06, 48° above your western horizon.
At magnitude 8.2, M94 is quite faint, and certainly not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed through a pair of binoculars or small telescope.
The position of M94 is as follows:
