Get outside this week for some stargazing and a chance to see these 2 planets

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini shows you how to find the three planets using the moon.

Get outside this week before sunrise, and do some stargazing.

Between March 26 and 29 you have the chance to see Jupiter and Saturn. On March 26, the moon will be in the southern sky around 7 a.m., very close to a bright looking star. That "star" is actually Jupiter.

On March 27 the moon will still be close by. On March 28 and March 29 around 7 a.m. the moon will shift closer to the planet Saturn. 

Look to the southeast sky to find this pairing. A bonus planet you can find each morning this month before sunrise will be in the east/southeastern sky and it is Venus. 

If you find any of these planets, snap a photo and use the hashtag #Skywitness7.
