March 9 & 10 – Early morning!
Take advantage of the super-dark skies above the Springs at Borrego to witness an impressive cosmic huddle on March 9-10. Dedicated sky-watchers will thrill as four worlds cluster in the southeast morning sky. Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn will all appear in near-perfect alignment, while the crescent moon will frame the trio of planets. Each heavenly body will appear as a brilliant dot, with Mercury being the faintest and Jupiter the brightest-all easily visible to the naked eye.
Even though our sky-watching parties have not yet returned, stargazers will be able to trek to a quiet place in the Anza-Borrego Desert and spot Jupiter’s four largest moons with regular binoculars. Bring a small telescope to reveal Saturn’s rings. Because of Earth’s position relative to Mercury and the sun, only half of the innermost planet’s disk will appear illuminated. As a result, Mercury will look like a miniature version of the quarter moon.
March 20 – Vernal Equinox!
You don’t need to watch the sky to feel the effects of Old Sol shining directly on the Equator on March 20. Equal amounts of daylight and darkness signify the arrival of Spring, lengthening days, and more time to enjoy outdoor activities – like golf – and the beauties of the desert.
