What to expect in the sky in March 2018

Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California and features a look at what to expect in the sky in March 2018.

This month, Venus and Mercury will be “evening stars” appearing low on the western horizon. In addition, Jupiter will rise just before midnight while Mars and Saturn will be visible in the morning.

The Zodiacal Light and the Milky Way will also intersect, which can be seen in a dark sky on a moonless night.
