No matter where you are in the world, the Moon and Venus will appear close together in the night sky on March 24th. It is also alongside bright Jupiter and Mars, and faint Uranus. The Moon is a small sliver, with only 12% of its Earth-facing side illuminated.
How to find the Moon, Venus and Jupiter
No matter where you live, look west just after the sun sets. In the sky he sees two bright objects superimposed. These are Jupiter and Venus. Jupiter approaches the horizon and sets shortly after sunset. Venus will be brighter and higher in the sky. If you look above Venus, you will see a crescent moon. Both sit between Pisces and Taurus.
How to find Jupiter’s moons
If you have binoculars or a small telescope, you can point them at Jupiter and look for three of its four largest moons, called the Galilean moons. Callisto is too close to the planet to see, but Europa, Io, and Ganymede will appear in line in that order on her March 24th after sunset, with Ganymede being the farthest from Jupiter. You may understand.
How to find Uranus
Uranus is also visible, but only for those with binoculars and access to dark skies away from light pollution. Uranus is right next to the crescent moon and will be closer to the moon than Venus.
How to identify Mars
Draw an imaginary line between the planet and the moon and extend it. Further up the horizon, we reach a bright reddish object. This is Mars. It is located in the constellation Gemini, next to two bright “twin” stars, Castor and Pollux.
