Tonight's Sky for March 2: Moon Meets Jupiter, the Beehive

Tonight, there will be a 3 in 1 cosmic show that will be easy to spot for even the absolute beginner. The show: a meet-up of the Moon, Jupiter, and the Beehive Cluster. The key to the whole enterprise: the Moon, which is impossible to miss. Moon found, look for the bright 'star' very close to it. That 'star' is, in fact, the planet Jupiter. As for the Beehive Cluster, eagle eyes or low power binoculars are needed to resolve the large cluster of stars near the Moon and the planet.
