Get a Jump on Time – Spring Forward

   Sometime tonight or officially Sunday morning clocks in most of the United States of America will be set one hour forward, or “Spring Forward”, putting the U.S.A. on Daylight Saving Time. For you astronomical types, and you know who you are, I live at approximately 94oW, in the Central Time Zone so springing forward for me is a change from UT-6 to UT-5.
   You can learn a lot about time and calendars at the Time and Date web site.

   Sunday evening, March 13th, the waxing crescent Moon will be near two open star clusters, the Pleiades and the Hyades, both part of the constellation Taurus the Bull.


Caution: Objects viewed with an optical aid are further than they appear.
