This Month’s Sky
Our 10th Anniversary!
Wow, I am really looking forward to spring and celebrating the first day of Spring on March 20th It will be wonderful to see the early spring flowers and our familiar spring constellations! Our nights will be getting
warmer and the sounds of spring peepers will begin to fill the air , by month s end. Mars continues to delight us in the evening sky all month long, shining brightly, high in the western sky, On March 4, Mars passes 3 degrees south of the Pleiades star cluster (Illustration 1) Then on March 20, Mars passes 7 degrees north of the red, orange star Aldebaran, the eye of Taurus the Bull Illustration 2).
Remember that Daylight Savings Time starts on March 14th , so the sun sets later. Our hike will begin at 8:30 pm , bundle up, hats, gloves, and coats and grab your Starry Trail Map and binoculars. We will still be able to see our dazzling stars of winter too !
