The Sky Is Cheap Entertainment: Five Bright Planets You Can See Now


You can see all 5 bright planets simultaneously now. You'll need to start looking soon after sunset, because Venus and Mercury are close to the sunset glare. A sweep with binoculars will help reveal them, but try with your eye alone, too. Saturn, Jupiter and Mars will be easy to spot, with Jupiter and Mars brighter than the brightest stars. As the month progresses, Venus will take its rightful place as the brightest of them all. And it and Mercury will be farther from the sunset, and easier to see. Beginning around December 24 - Christmas Eve and Christmas Day - you can watch as the waxing crescent moon begins moving up past the line of planets.
