4 planets visible to the naked eye this week


Four planets will be visible to the naked eye, clustered together in the pre-dawn sky. Amateur astronomers will be able to make out Mercury, Mars, Venus and Jupiter in the skies overhead.

Venus and Jupiter will be the easiest to spot, hanging low in the sky to the east. The planets will be the brightest objects in the sky after the moon.

Eagle-eyed stargazers will be able to find Jupiter and Mars to the lower left of Venus, but they may be too faint or low to see without binoculars.
