The Sky Is Cheap Entertainment: Hey, Look, Its Jupiter!

Jupiter is the planet to watch in March, 2016. It’s very bright, ascending in the east after sunset. Photo by Michael C. Dupree in Lawrence, Kansas.

Jupiter is so bright and obvious in the sky in the east after sunset, I can see it without my glasses! And if you are an early bird, you can see Saturn and Mars before dawn. Cool.

This is some pretty awesome classical music about the planets to get you in the mood for skygazing.
