Today’s Video of the Day from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) describes all of the fascinating sights that you can see in the night sky this month.
Beginning around March 18, Saturn will be visible in the early morning hours – gradually moving closer to Mars and Venus.
The Hyades star cluster is located in the center of the constellation of Taurus. It is the closest open star cluster to our solar system. This month, with a pair of binoculars, you can see hundreds of stars in this cluster.
To find the Hyades, look for a V-shape grouping of stars in Taurus. According to NASA, you can use the stars of Orion’s belt as a handy pointer.
