Manitoba Skies for March 2016

Although the weather hasn't noticed yet, spring is on the way. March brings the Vernal Equinox, the official start of spring in the northern hemisphere. It also brings excellent views of the two largest planets in our solar system, a solar eclipse we won't see from Manitoba, and a chance to catch the winter constellations in slightly warmer conditions.

Read all about the events visible in Manitoba Skies this month on the Planetarium's Current Night Sky page.
