Neptune rise and set in Thule Air Base

Up some of the night. Use binoculars.

Neptune is visible more than 9 hours during the polar 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.
