Skywatching Tonight: March 28-29

Moon and Saturn

The MOON is in its waning gibbous phase, and if you are up late (around 11:00 pm Central time), you can see it paying a visit to SATURN in the eastern sky. On Thursday, March 28, it lies between the bright star SPICA and SATURN.

On Friday, March 29, the MOON will have moved below SATURN. Stay up for this pairing, Chicago, because it looks like we will have clear skies!
