The following is a list of celestial events occuring during the month of March 2009:
- March 3 - The Moon is 0.8 degrees North of M45 (the Pleiades) at 08:00 UTC.
- March 8 - Saturn is at opposition. Opposition is the point where we are closest to Saturn, and thus it will be the best viewing time. Daylight Savings Time begins today. (I think we just need to get rid of DST, however). The Moon is 1.5 degrees South of M44 at 02:00 UTC.
- March 11 - Double Galilean shadow transit at 04:03 UTC.
- March 12 - My birthday! Maybe I'll get clear skies.
- March 16 - GLOBE at night campaign begins and runs until March 28.
- March 20 - Vernal Equinox occurs today.
- March 22 - Jupiter is 1.5 degrees South of the Moon.
- March 24 - Mars is 4 degrees South of the Moon.
- March 30 - The Moon is 0.6 degrees North of M45 (the Pleiades).
There are no major meteor showers in March.
If anything new develops, I'll update this list. Clear skies!
