    Thanks. I've got a pair of SkyMaster binoculars I use a lot. They come in handy when you you don't feel like setting up a telescope!

    Nice Alana,

    Yesterday morning I got to see 3 of them just with my eyes, but definitely the show of 4 together is an amazing view.

    This is a great month in the early morning for Venus/Mars/Jupiter, and if you have a view of the lower horizon, throw Mercury in there too! One of these mornings I really need to get out of bed early and set up to look at them. I will be kicking myself if I don't.

    Yes, Mercury is supposed to be highest around morning of the 16th. But I'm planning to be out early Sunday morning the 11th, when the tiny sliver of crescent moon should be just below Mercury, about 36 hours before new.
