Neptune rise and set in Thule Air Base

After sunset and most of the night. Use binoculars.

Neptune is visible during most of the night, but it is best viewed in the late evening hours after sunset. 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.
