Equinox supermoon, and more can't-miss sky shows in March
Look up this month to see planetary pairings, ghostly lights, and a special spring supermoon.
The coming month heralds the last supermoon of 2019, as well as a series of stunning lunar pairings, and plenty more reasons to look up at the night sky. You’ll even have the chance to spy on ghostly glows caused by interplanetary particle clouds.
So dust off those binoculars, and mark your March calendar!
As the month opens, early risers will be treated to the sight of Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn joined by a waning crescent moon. This brilliant grouping will hang in the southeastern sky about an hour before local sunrise for a couple days in a row.
Look toward the West as darkness falls on this night to see the waxing crescent moon near orange star-like Mars.
