Not sure residents of Moreno Valley will see this one, but I'm including it for two reasons. One, Mercury is at greatest elongation east on The Ides of March so this should give observers their best chance of seeing this fleeting planet that is so close to the Sun. Even so, Mercury will only be 7 degrees (about the width of four fingers held at arm's length) above the western horizon about 1 hour after sunset. Two, Brilliant Venus, now the "Evening Star," will be "a couple of finger widths" below Mercury. You'll need a clear unobstructed view of the western horizon to see these two planets. Taos residents have the best chance of seeing this event.
Sirius is all by itself shining brightly above the southern horizon in mid March about an hour and a half after sunset. You can still see open star clusters M47 and M46 if you scan your binocs left of Sirius and slightly down. The two Messier objects will be along the left side of the Milky Way dim ribbon of stars that you can see cascading down and to the left of the brightest star visible in the night sky anywhere on Earth.
Leo The Lion is centered prominently above the eastern horizon in March, so you can use your binoculars to get a closer look at the bright stars that make up this well known constellation. A pleasing side light is the Coma Star Cluster. It is a large group of stars best viewed through the wide field of 10x50 binoculars. You'll see at least 50 stars that share the same proper motion through space. They probably were all born in the same molecular cloud which has long since been absorbed or blown away by the stellar winds in this cluster. The Coma Cluster is about 288 light years away in the constellation Coma Berenices (Berenices Hair).
