Check out the sky tonight!  We should be able to see five planets in alignment under the crescent moon.  Hopefully the clouds and weather will cooperate. It’s a planetary parade  just after sunset!

Look for Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter and Uranus!  Grab some binoculars and look at the western horizon just after sunset when streaks of the sunset still remain and the sky has turned dark blue but not yet black.

Venus will be the brightest star, Uranus will be close to Venus. Beneath Uranus will be Jupiter, then Mercury.  Mars will be easy to see because of its orange tint and will round up the parade.

The planetary parade should be visible for us for about 20 minutes tonight.
