Cosmic line-up: 5 planets for the price of 1

from http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/sciencefair/2016/01/18/planets-morning-sky-january-february/78962134/
If you are up at the crack o' dawn over the next several weeks, face south to watch Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn line up (but not in that order) for your personal enjoyment. If you miss them, there will be another show, evenings, next August 13-19.

According to USA Today, the last time this happened was in 2005. So, not a once in a lifetime happening but also not something you see every day!
