In the sky of March 2021 it is a real relay of planets to greet the arrival of spring, with Mars clearly visible in the early hours of the night, while Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn take over at dawn. 

"The

Spring Equinox

will fall on

March 20 at 10:37

, Italian time", observes the Italian Amateur Astronomers Union (Uai) and in March "

Mars

will be observable in the early hours of the night, in the constellation of Taurus", where will be the protagonist of an evocative meeting with the star

Aldebaran

.

Also during the month, the Red Planet will also have encounters with the

Pleiades

and the

Moon

.

As for the other planets, however, "for

Mercury it

will be possible to attempt observation in the early morning, as well as for

Jupiter

and

Saturn

, low on the eastern horizon, between the lights of dawn".

Instead, we will have to say goodbye to

Venus

which, the Uai amateurs point out, “being in conjunction with the Sun, it will be impossible to observe, to become visible again in the following months, in the evening”.

The March sky “will still be dominated by the great

winter constellations

.

Unmistakable

Orion

, with the three aligned stars of the belt and the bright stars

Betelgeuse

and

Rigel

.

In the same area of ​​the sky - continue the amateur astronomers - we find the constellations of

Taurus

with the red star Aldebaran, the constellation of

Auriga

with the bright star

Capella

, the

Gemini

with the main stars

Castor

and

Pollux

.

At the bottom left of

Orion

, in the constellation of

Canis Major

, shines

Sirius

, the brightest star in the sky.

In the early hours of the night, the great zodiacal constellations of

Leo

and

Virgo

make their appearance in the eastern sky

.

Along the zodiac - they conclude - we finally find also the small and weak constellation of

Cancer

to separate Gemini from Leo ”.
