Saturn, Regulus and the Moon, 19 March


The north-eastern evening sky on Wednesday March 19 at 9:00 pm daylight saving time as seen from the southern hemisphere.

The sky is pretty nice at the moment, with Taurus, and Orion in the north west. As well, there is a bit of planetary action this week.

On Wednesday March 19th, The Moon, Saturn and the bright star Regulus will form a close triangle that you can cover with two fingers held at arms length. That will be rather cool to see.

And that's not all. In the morning sky, Mercury and Venus will come back together again over the coming week. As well, there is a series of accessible Iridium flares during this week, so check out http://www.heavens-above.com/ for local predictions.
