The planets will be visible in the south-eastern quadrant of the sky, so make sure you’re in an area that’s not affected by light pollution. Bring with you a pair of good binoculars or a small telescope and enjoy a rare gathering.
As NASA’s Solar System Exploration puts it, your best chance to see - with little effort - how our neighbors from space look like is to do it before the 27th or 28th of March. The moon will be joining the night sky, and its powerful reflection of the Sun might tamper with what you’ll be able to witness.
If you’re into astrology, then keep in mind this event is regarded as sporadic conjunction that favors those born during this period. It’s predicted these people will champion their goals with almost guaranteed success.
But this is not all! There’s more good news: if you have to work or the weather in your area is not cooperating, or you’re just not ready to pull an all-nighter to witness this gorgeous triad, then rejoice! Saturn and Mars will keep the show going for at least two nights between the 3rd and the 5th of April.
Even if you’re not a fan of what the night sky might bring, make sure to at least enjoy a moment of solitude and silence in this current global climate. You deserve a break. We all do!
