There are many space events, but the Dawn spacecraft will arrive at dwarf planet Ceres around March 6th. According to official information from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory:
Ceres is the largest body in the main asteroid belt, which lies between Mars and Jupiter. It has an average diameter of 590 miles (950 kilometers), and is thought to contain a large amount of ice. Some scientists think it's possible that the surface conceals an ocean.
Dawn's arrival at Ceres will mark the first time a spacecraft has ever visited a dwarf planet.*
