Starry Night This Week

Each week most PBS stations air "Jack Horkheimer: Star Gazer", the world's first and only weekly TV series on naked-eye astronomy. The Starry Night images on this page illustrate the show for the week of Monday March 2, 2009. You can view the complete show script, or watch a RealPlayer video of the show.

By the end of the month Aries will be setting and Leo will be high overhead.
