The Moon meets Jupiter on the 2nd. Venus stands very near Uranus on the 4th, with Mars below them, in Pisces. The 20th brings the vernal equinox at 6:45 P.M. and a Total Eclipse of the Sun! This eclipse will happen over Scotland; the path of totality then marches directly to—and stops at—the North Pole. The crescent Moon meets Mars on the 21st and passes to the left of Venus on the 22nd. Jupiter hovers near the Moon on the 29th.
