SUMMARY: During late April and May you'll get an opportunity to see the five brightest planets lined up in a single evening. Look West in the early evening sky and you'll be able to see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn grouped up. The grouping is fairly rare and won't be seen again until 2040.

This is an old thread; the alignment it refers to occured in 2002. Actually another one, almost as good, happened in 2004; see this thread
