March Astronomy Highlights


The night sky this month is void of many sights.


We will be able to see Mercury and Saturn on March 2 in the eastern sky just before dawn almost at the horizon.


By mid-month, Mars and Saturn will be high in the eastern sky.


From March 26 to 28 Mars, Saturn, and Venus will form a triangle with Mars to the right, Saturn to the left, and Venus on the top.
