Usually scan Praesepe in March but I have an early view of it up here, toward the eastern horizon. With a 40 mm the view is the best but not remarkable. Mainly, Jupiter a few degrees SW of Delta Cancri is the sight lighting up the sky here, almost on the line of the ecliptic. Jupiter is being carried along by the donkeys tonight.
