Neptune rise and set in Qaanaaq

Up most of the night. Use binoculars.

Neptune is roughly in the opposite direction of the Sun, so it is visible during most of the night. It is quite close to the horizon, making it fainter because the light has to cover a larger distance when traveling through the Earth's atmosphere. Make sure to get an unobstructed view. Very faint, use binoculars.
