Do not underestimate the parade of the planet will take place in a few days.
Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Uranus and Mars will carve the nights of March 25-30 into a bow, next to the Moon.
However, Jupiter can sink into the sunset and leave the light of the sun three days later, to try to capture this relatively rare cosmic event at that time.
If you want to spot all five planets in one night, Leo, Leo, dark skies, and a clear view of the horizon are key.
How to watch the parade of planets
You can probably see some planets from your city. Venus will be the easiest to spot with the naked eye, because it is the third brightest in the sky after the Sun and the Moon.
But some of the other planets, such as Uranus and Mercury, can be more difficult to see.
Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Uranus and Mars will rise on the nights of March 25-30, next to the moon.
The best odds are by moving from the city lights to a place with a dark sky before sunset. Look at the weather and plan for a clear night.
Put it in a place with a clear, open view of the west – no mountains or buildings to block the sunset! You will have to look at Jupiter and Mercury on the horizon.
You will probably need binoculars or even a telescope to see Uranus.
Since most of the planets are visible to the naked eye, you will probably need binoculars, or even a telescope, to see Uranus and get the full procession of the five planets.
An easy way to identify the planets is to download an astrology app like Sky Tonight or SkySafari, which will show exactly where each planet is in the night sky.
Where to watch in the hours after sunset
Shortly after the sun sinks below the horizon, they look to the west. Low in the sky, where the Sun has already set, Jupiter and Mercury will appear side by side.
A decrease in sunlight can make them difficult to see with the naked eye. So if you can’t spot them at first, try binoculars. Just make sure the Sun is below the horizon so you don’t hurt your eyes looking through the binoculars.
Only two will be visible less than an hour after sunset. then they will sink below the horizon and you will not be able to see them.
Now is the time to marvel at Venus, the bright starry object of the night, and fly Jupiter, and look for Uranus with your binoculars.

Uranus will be above and Venus will be next to the left. You will be able to see the fainter planet better after all sunlight has disappeared from the sky, taking Jupiter and Mercury with it. You’ll have an hour or two to look for him before the two are even hidden under the horizon.
On the other hand, you will have time to see the red planet Mars. It will appear red and high in the southern sky, above and slightly to the left of the Moon on March 25, 25-27, below the Moon on March 28 and beyond.
Extra planet: Saturn. If you stay up all night or wake up before dawn, you should see Saturn low on the Eastern horizon just before sunrise on March 27th and 28th.
