the morning sky, joining up with Jupiter, Mars,
Venus and Saturn - the first appearance of all
five visible planets in the same sky since the year
2005. Look for all five planets in the predawn/
dawn sky until about February 20
Evening planets: Jupiter at Opposition will be
brighter than any other time of the year and will
be visible all night long, A good pair of binocu-
lars should allow you to see Jupiter¡¯s four largest
