Draco can be seen all year around, but the best time to spot this constellation is during the month of July. If you are looking north during the summer months, Draco is facing upright, but as the year goes on it slowly flips upside down. You can see Draco year-round in the northern hemisphere. The best viewing for Draco is during July at 80o above the horizon line while looking North.
