Saturn's rings reappear

March 2010: The March skies open with a spectacularly bright Venus hugging the western horizon just after sunset.
March 2010 saturn rings
Saturn’s rings tilt 3° to our line of sight at this month’s opposition, slightly more than in this Hubble Space Telescope view from February 2009. Notice orange Titan and its black shadow crossing Saturn’s north polar region.

The March skies open with a spectacularly bright Venus hugging the western horizon just after sunset. Late in the month, Mercury joins Venus in the evening twilight. Mars rides high in the southeast as darkness falls. Although it is now past its best, the Red Planet remains an attractive sight with naked eyes and a worthwhile target for those with medium-sized scopes.
