Four Planets in the Sky Tonight!

If you are an early riser and the clouds clear just a bit, you’ll have a chance to see four planets in the night sky.  Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and Mars will all be visible with the naked eye while looking east.  Venus and Jupiter are the two brightest planets in our solar system and will be 1/2 degree apart.  The best morning to view this spectacle is Wednesday, about a half hour before sunrise.  While that is the best time to view, all the planets will be visible through the month of May.
