Wednesday is an exciting day for astronomy! March 20th marks the spring equinox (beginning of spring), a full Moon (the Full Worm Moon which marks the beginning of spring and the final Super Moon of 2019) and Asteroid 2019 EA2 will pass by the earth at less than 190,000 mile away. (That is closer than the moon!) Be sure to look to the sky on Wednesday night!
There is a lot to see this weekend in the night sky! From a Snow Moon Eclipse to Green Comet, aka Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova, be sure to check out the night sky!
