Sky Watch March 2018
A cold and rainy February, but lakes are getting full and the Quarry is up!
The Equinox is coming around the corner on March 20.
Orion and the winter stars are setting earlier, and the spring stars, led by Leo, are rising. Venus will start to appear as the evening star in the west as the month goes on.
Two full moons in March: on the 1st, and the second "Blue Moon" of the year on the 31st!
Spring and Summer stars are up at 6. Jupiter is along with them, high and bright in the south, followed by Mars in Scorpio and Saturn in Sagittarius.
The Big Dipper is right overhead.
At the Quarry:
Kingfishers, and one of our friendliest visitors this time of year: the tiny Ruby Crowned Kinglet (pictured to the right)...drinking off a leaf.
Head outside and take a look.............!
