Five Planets to Appear Together Before Dawn
Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will all be available to the naked eye.
Starting Wednesday morning, the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter will all be visible together—and by the naked eye—for the first time since January of 2005.
Gazers can spot all five worlds in the southern sky, approximately between 5:35 a.m.-5:45 a.m. daily until February 20.
However, if the month-long window isn’t enough of a stretch to plan out a peek, the planets will reappear en masse in the evening sky come August 13-19, and then again in October of 2018.
