3.5.14 Busy Night Sky

If you can brave the cold, there is lots to see in the night sky.
Another brutally cold night is on tap, but the cold comes with clear skies. If you can brave the chill, you'll be treated to a busy and bright night sky. Four planets are visible in March.

Jupiter is visible right as darkness falls each evening this month.

Venus, on the other hand, is most visible just before dawn.

Sandwiched in-between those two you'll find Saturn. The ringed planet rises from the east-southeast around 1 AM and is located near the constellation Libra the Scales.

Mars probably steals the show. It becomes visible as it rises from the eastern horizon around 10:30 PM. It will be easy to spot since it is reddish in color.

Share your pictures of the planets on Facebook, Twitter, or via e-mail (weather@fox44now.com).
