Both Thursday and Friday nights will see a stunning sky show with four planets – Saturn, Mars, Venus and Mercury – lined up in a diagonal row in the western sky at dusk. As an added bonus the crescent Moon will be joining the show for these two nights only.
No need to get away from the bright lights of the city to see these points of light. They will appear easily to the unaided eye from just about anywhere you have clear skies and a clear line of sight towards the low western horizon.
