A reason to wake up early: 4 planets align!

If you happen to be an early riser, you’ll get to see a cool sight.  Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter will be visible all at the same time.  In addition, if you happen to have a good pair of binoculars or a telescope you can add Uranus and Neptune to the mix.  For the past couple of months, most of the planets have been hiding behind the sun.  This alignment will last for the next couple of weeks, so we’ll have time to clear out these clouds and hopefully get to see this cool lineup. If you don’t have binoculars or a telescope, no worries.  You can actually see this pairing with the naked eye.  So head out and enjoy!
