We can witness a rare planetary alignment as seen from earth for the next week or so, if the weather cooperates. Between 5AM and dawn all seven of the other planets are grouped in the same part of the sky to the southeast. Uranus and Neptune of course can only be seen via a telescope but the other five are all visible by the naked eye. The highest in the sky will be Saturn, then Jupiter, then Mars and the very low in the sky will be Venus and Mercury.

My motto: Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow as it may not be required. This no longer applies in light of current events.

That thing called weather always seems to screw things like that up quite often here. :-(
