% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Late evening sky on Tuesday March 14 looking east as seen from Adelaide at 23:00 ACDST.  Jupiter is now well above the horizon close to the bright star Spica.

The inset shows the telescopic view of Jupiter at 23:00 pm as Europa is about reappear from occultation. Similar views will be seen elsewhere in Australia at the equivalent local time. (click to embiggen).

The March edition of Southern Skywatch is  up (still late again, sorry, but better).

This month starts with Venus and Mars lined up close in the evening sky, Venus is rapidly lost to view though.

 Jupiter climbs higher in the evening sky, and is less than a hand-span from the bright star Spica for this month. On the 14th it is not far from the Moon.

Saturn climbs higher in the morning sky during the month. On the 21st it is close to the waning Moon.

Mercury returns to the evening sky late in the month, but will be hard to see.
