2021, March: Mars Marches Through Taurus

March 2021: While not as bright as a few months ago, Mars marches eastward through the starfields of Taurus during the month. Use a binocular to watch it skip past the Pleiades star cluster and near the Hyades. Later in the month, it passes Aldebaran, the constellation’s brightest star, and moves toward the Bull’s horns as the month ends.
