20 Mar    Jupiter and Venus are now more than 3 finger-widths apart. Today is the first day of spring, the vernal equinox. The sun crosses the celestial equator into the northern celestial hemisphere at 0513 UT.

24 Mar    Low in the west at sunset, the thin waxing crescent moon sets less than 1½ hours after the sun. Magnitude -2.1 Jupiter is 1 fist-width to the moon’s upper left, and magnitude -4.3 Venus is nearly 1 fist-width above Jupiter.
