Early risers can see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in the east before sunrise. The five planets are all lined up among the stars. We can normally see the solar system’s brightest planets in the night sky throughout most of the year.. However, it is not often that the planets line up in such a unique way.
It is also special because the planets appear in the sky in the same order they are outward from the sun. The order is: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. You don’t even need a pair of binoculars to catch the show but you will need a good view of the eastern horizon.
This planetary pageant has been going on for a few weeks but on Thursday, Mercury will be at its highest point in the eastern sky. The time to catch a glimpse is roughly an hour before sunrise.
