11 Mar    Venus is less than 2 finger-widths to Jupiter’s lower right tonight. Daylight saving time begins at 0200.

12 Mar    Tonight Venus and Jupiter stand side by side only about 3 degrees, 1½ finger-widths, apart. In the coming days, Venus climbs high, leaving Jupiter behind.

13 Mar    Low in the south before dawn, the moon is in the head of the Scorpion constellation, Scorpius. About two-thirds of the moon’s surface is illuminated.

14 Mar    Venus is 1½ finger-widths to Jupiter’s upper right.

15 Mar    Low in the south before dawn, the moon is just above the dome of the teapot constellation, Sagittarius. Beware the Ides of March, a seer warned Julius Caesar; he was assassinated on this day in 44 BC.

17 Mar    Continuing to climb away from Jupiter, Venus is a little more than 2 finger-widths to the upper right.
