    March 2018 – Exciting Astronomy

    Hey Astrophiles,

    March is another awesome month for astronomy……lets just hope this cloudy weather goes away so we can see it!
    Blue Moon !  Equinox !  Hubble Space Telescope sightings !  Venus and Mercury  !  and more.
     
    Tonight March 1 is Full Moon…..the first of 2 happening this month…..which means March 31 is another (amateur astronomer) Blue Moon!  Yippeeee.
     
    Also, watch for Venus low in the West after sunset……Mercury, the trickster, will be dancing by Venus the night of March 5.
    I’m looking to have a stargazing party on Saturday March 17……on the New Moon……details to follow.
     
    Spring Equinox is March 20.  See you soon.   Becky – Maui Astronomy Club
