Eyes on the Sky: March 26 thru April 1

4y ago


The Moon joins Venus in the sky, then Venus joins the Pleiades, and the whole sky looks fantastic by the 28th. Then turn northeast/overhead to the Big Bear, Ursa Major, where 3 sets of stars make tracks in the sky - and not from bearprints, either! The lovely colors of Tania Borealis and Tania Australis are the highlight this week - easily visible in binoculars everywhere, and naked eye from most areas. Also, Mars continues retrograding in Leo towards Regulus and Saturn sidles up to Spica. See what's up in the night sky every week with "Eyes on the Sky," astronomy made easy.
