    Thanks for all your help! Is it visible when there’s a half moon?

    Yes, though it will be less prominent than otherwise. Galaxies hate the Moon and try to hide from it.

    Light pollution, whether from city lights or the moon, really puts a damper on galaxy observing. But Andromeda is so bright that it's core (not it's extended areas) is usually visible except under the brightest of polluted conditions.

    Depends on the current time and from where you are observing. From where I am it is in the sky most of the evening in March.

    For a time. It is getting westward even now and with the days lengthening, it won't hang around long.

    I recommend downloading Stellarium Astronomy Software. This free planetarium app will show you what is where and when from the location of your choice. Pretty cool app and you can't beat the price.
