5 Planets Lined Up Before Sunrise

If you’re up before sunrise, say 6:45-7:15 or so, and the clouds cooperate, you’ll be in for a treat! Over the next few weeks, you’ll be able to see from lower left to upper right, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter. The moon is included in this picture because it will be in play for the next few days. Check out what Sky & Telescope has to say about this. http://www.skyandtelescope.com/astronomy-news/observing-news/get-up-early-see-five-planets-at-once-01182015/

The last time this happened was more than a decade ago. Enjoy!
