It hasn’t happened in 11 years, but starting in the morning hours of January 20, all five bright planets will appear together in the morning sky.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn should be visible simultaneously before dawn beginning tomorrow and will remain visible before dawn until February 20, 2016.

These planets reflect sunlight and will shine not brighter but steadier than the more distant stars. Look to the south and check out the sky charts here.
