I do go into detail as to the upcoming astronomical events for the upcoming month. So if you don’t want to miss out on those new videos, please do hit the subscribe button below so starting on march, the 4th we will have a mars pleiades conjunction event in which the planet mars will appear very close to the pleiades star cluster. In the night sky, this conjunction event will happen early in the evening after sunset, a conjunction of venus, when two celestial objects, as seen from earth, appear very close together in the night sky. On march, the 5th will have a mercury jupiter conjunction of an image to two planets. Mercury and jupiter will appear very close to each other in the night sky. Saturn will also be visible at the same time during the conjunction event, making this a great opportunity to photograph all three planets to the east. The conjunction event will happen early in the morning before sunrise. So, if you want to see this, they will have to wake up early in the morning before sunrise march also provides us with yet another great opportunity to photograph the elusive planet. Mercury in the eastern skies as mercury or reaches greatest western elongation in the night sky. At 27.3 degrees west, on march, the 6th look to the eastern skies before sunrise.
So if you want to see this you’ll have to wake up early in the morning before sunrise on the march, the 10th, we will have a moon, jupiter, conjunction event and a moon saturn conjunction event. In the same night, the moon, jupiter conjunction that will happen first before the moon moves on to saturn. The two conjunction events will happen early in the morning before sunrise. So if you want to see this, they will have to wake up early in the morning before sunrise. The moon will also be in its mind, increasing phase with 12.4 elimination. When this happens on march the 11th, we will have a moon mercury conjunction event in the early morning before sunrise, the moon will be in its mind, increase in phase with six percent elimination. When this happens on march the 18th, we will have a moon apogee in which the moon will reach its greatest distance from earth at 405, 300 kilometers away from our planet. The moon will be in its vast increase in phase with 20.4 elimination. When this happens on march 20th, we will have a moon mars conjunction of an image. The moon will appear very close to the planet mars. The moon will be in its max increase in phase with 38.2 elimination. When this happens, since mars is already very far away from earth, it will no longer be that bright like it once was. At the same time, it will also have a vernal equinox in which the sun crosses the plane of earth’s equator in the northern hemisphere.
The vernal equinox occurs in march in the autumnal equinox in september. In the southern hemisphere, the vernal equinox occurs in september, the autumnal equinox. In march on march 21st, we will have a mars aldebaran, conjunction event in which the planet mars will appear very close to the star aldebaran in the constellation taurus. The first quarter. Moon will also be in the night sky. At the same time, the conjunction event will happen early in the evening after sunset on march 24th, we will have a moon behind the conjunction of an image the moon will appear very close to the beehive star cluster. In the constellation of cancer, the moon will also be in its waxing gibbous face with 79.7 elimination when this happens, making it difficult to capture the beehive star cluster. Finally, on march the 30th, we will have a moon perigee in which the moon will make its closest approach to earth at 360 thousand two hundred kilometers away from our planet. The moon will be in its waning gibbous phase, with 98.8 elimination when this happens, since the moon will be at its closest to earth, it’ll appear bigger in the night sky also, since we are close to the equinox. It is also a really good time of year to see and capture the zodiacal light. The zodiac light is a triangular diffuse white glow that is visible in the night sky in the direction of the sun after sunset or before sunrise.
It is caused by interplanetary dust in between the plane of the planets scattering sunlight, making it a natural form of light pollution, since the interplanetary dust is within the same plane as the planets, the zodiacalite is always found on the zodiac band of the night sky, straddling The ecliptic, which is the imaginary line, that the sun, the planets and the moon, follow across the night sky, the best time to see and photograph. The zodiac light is when the ecliptic is at a steep angle to the horizon, which is after sunset, for those in the northern hemisphere and before sunrise for those in the southern hemisphere. At this time of year. Since it is a very faint glow make sure that there is no light pollution towards the direction of the sunset or sunrise, the zodiacal light is also best seen when the moon is not in the night sky. When it gets astronomical twilight, you should be able to see the zodiacal light emanating from the horizon, and it will also be visible around an hour or two at before sunrise and after sunset. However, for those at the equator, the zodiacal light is visible all year round. For those people who are more experienced in astrophotography, you might want to photograph the gegen’s shine. The gigan’s shine is part of the zodiacal light, but it is located directly opposite. The sun known as the anti solar point, if you are in pristine, dark skies close to the equator, you can’t see the zodiacal light stretching from horizontal horizon and the point directly opposite.
The sun is a bright bulge called the gegen’s shine the interplanetary dust. There is backscattering the light to earth and it’s a slightly brighter bulge in the zodiacal band techniques like stacking and tracking, combined with dark skies. A new moon and good conditions will make the again shine, stand out now, that’s it for the highlights of march 2021 guys.
