Watch: Starting Today, You Can See 5 Planets At Once With The Naked Eye!

By

It’s been 10 years since humans have been able to view 5 planets in the night sky with nothing but the naked eye. Starting today, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus, and Mercury will all be visible in the northern hemipshere during the early morning hours for the next month.

Mercury is proving a bit elusive and if you want to be able to catch all 5, you’ll have to wake up roughly 45 minuted before dawn to catch the fastest orbiting planet in our solar system.
