Sky Guy Viewing ALERT!!!!! 3-24 to 3-26

Hey Space Placers!

Tonight and the next two nights, the crescent Moon will will be a sight to see and then will pass by Jupiter and then Venus in the west at dusk forming a beautiful sight.

Venus and Jupiter pair up with the Moon in twilight

The best time to view the lovely trio will be when the deep blue of the sky forms a gorgeous contrast and background for viewing. The Moon will have Earthshine present - the dark of the Moon will be visible because of the sunlight reflecting off of Earth's clouds and oceans to illuminate the Moon's surface.

Get and enjoy this viewing treat as Jupiter is sinking low into the west and will soon disappear into the Sun's glare.

Also, the launching of the 5 ATREX sounding rockets - see my blog on the 17th - is now set for March 26, probably midnight to 3 a.m.

Tomorrow I will have an amazing report on the amount of energy dumped into our atmosphere by the recent solar will not want to miss it.
