This month has a lot of opportunities for sky-gazers all over the world. In the first week of March, Mars will appear near the Pleiades star cluster, high in the west in the few hours after sunset.
The stars Aldebaran, which forms the angry eye of Taurus the bull and looks like reddish objects forming a line with Mars, could also be observed.
Betelgeuse, the shoulder of Orion can be seen near Aldebaran too. According to NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and other observatories, the star’s dimness last year was likely due to a cloud of dust ejected by the aging red giant.
The Daily guide starts from March 5 till March 28 which includes the appearance of Antares, Mercury, Jupiter, Aldebaran, Pollux, Regulus, Venus, and of course the various phases of the moon, including the ‘Wet Moon’ or ‘Cheshire Moon’.
