New Moon, Dark Skies
Take advantage of the dark skies provided by the New Moon on March 28th to scope out the many star clusters, galaxies and other deep-sky gems March has to offer.
On March 29th immediately following sunset, the brand-new crescent Moon and planets Mars and Mercury will form a large triangle above the western horizon. You don’t need a telescope to see this pretty grouping!
Challenge Object, NGC 2419, “The Intergalactic Wanderer”
In the constellation Lynx, from a location with dark skies using a good 4.5″ or larger telescope, try to find globular cluster NGC 2419.
