    • Vesta Naked Eye Asteroid:
      From: Mon Mar 01, 2021 8:00 pm
      To: Thu Mar 11, 2021 4:00 am
      Asteroid Vesta will be visible to the naked eye in early March. Its peak brightness is on March 5 at mag. 5.84. At culmination the atmosphere only diminishes that down to about 6.0. It should be almost as bright for several nights before and after the 5th, though beforehand the Moon will interfere since you'll probably need to view it fairly late when it is higher in the sky. You'll also need a semi-dark site, of course.
    • Mercury at Greatest Western Elongation:
      From: Sat Mar 06, 2021 8:00 pm
      To: Sun Mar 07, 2021 4:00 am
      The planet Mercury reaches greatest western elongation of 27.3 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Mercury since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the morning sky. Look for the planet low in the eastern sky just before sunrise.

    • March New Moon:
      Time: Sat Mar 13, 2021 10:23 am
      The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This phase occurs at 10:23 UTC. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.
    • March Equinox:
      Time: Sat Mar 20, 2021 9:27 am
      The March equinox occurs at 09:27 UTC. The Sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This is also the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.
    • Venus at Greatest Western Elongation:
      From: Sat Mar 20, 2021 8:00 pm
      To: Sun Mar 21, 2021 4:00 am
      The planet Venus reaches greatest eastern elongation of 46.6 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Venus since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the morning sky. Look for the bright planet in the eastern sky before sunrise.
    • March Full Moon:
      Time: Sun Mar 28, 2021 6:49 pm
      The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be will be fully illuminated. This phase occurs at 18:49 UTC. The March Full Moon is known as the Worm Moon because this was the time of year when the ground begins to soften and the earthworms appear. This moon has also been known as the Crow Moon, the Crust Moon, the Sap Moon, and the Lenten Moon.
