Tonight you can see 5 of our solar systems planets in the night sky. Mars is in the east, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury are in the west, you are standing on Earth, and Saturn comes up around midnight. :-) I went out and took some pictures tonight just before the ISS pass.
Jupiter and Venus, Mercury was too low on the horizon to see from our house thanks to the tall tress.
