On March 28 and 29 – and even some evenings after that – see the waxing crescent moon and the planet Venus in the evening sky. They’re beautiful! And you can use them to find the constellation Taurus the Bull.
Enjoy the great sky show in the east before sunrise on March 17, 18, 19 and 20, 2020. The moon will appear as a thinner crescent each morning as it parades by the four morning planets: Jupiter, Mars, Saturn and Mercury.
Look outside before dawn on March 16, 2020 for the last quarter moon. Its illuminated side will be pointing at the planets Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. Some people will catch Mercury, too, shortly before sunrise.
Let the moon show you Antares, the red supergiant star, on the morning of March 15, 2020. If your sky is fairly dark, see if you can make out the graceful shape of Antares’ constellation – Scorpius the Scorpion – in the moon’s glare.
