Jupiter at Peak Planet, a Late-night Lunar X, and Mars and Mercury Hang Out in the West!

(Above: At this first quarter, a feature called the Lunar X will be visible in strong binoculars and small telescopes. For a few hours, the illuminated rims of the craters Parbach, la Caille, and Blanchinus will form a small, but very obvious X-shape located at moon coordinates 2° East and 24° South. This image was taken by Jerry Lodigruss, NASA APOD for March 11, 2009)
( Look for Saturn in the constellation of Sagittarius this week. )
