Southern Skywatch March 2011 edition is now up!

Evening sky looking west showing Jupiter at 8:00 pm local daylight saving time on Monday March 7 (similar views will be seen from other cities at the equivalent local time). Click to embiggen.

The March edition of Southern Skywatch is now up.

Mercury returns to the evening sky, but never gets very high above the horizon.

Venus is now a gibbous shape in small telescopes. Venus meets up with the crescent Moon twice this month and also meets up with 3 double stars.

Jupiter is low in the twilight early in the month, then is too close to the Sun in the latter half of the Month to see.

Saturn is now a good telescopic object in the late evening and early morning. It is now rising after twilight.
