The open star cluster NGC 884 in Perseus, also known as the eastern half of the double cluster, will be well placed for observation, culminating at around midnight local time.

At magnitude 4.0, NGC884 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.

At a declination of +57°07′ , it is seen to best advantage in the northern hemisphere.
