If you go out any morning for the next four days, you'll be treated to a view of the crescent moon and all but one of the naked eye planets.

may have to try and get up early, but it is really tough...of course, we have barely seen the sun in the past month so I doubt our chances of seeing the stars/planets are very high.

thanks for this interesting article though.

Good luck everyone.
Tip: Astronomers measure distances in the sky in terms of degrees. For reference, your clenched fist held at arm's length covers about 10 degrees of the night sky. The brightness of a planet or other object in the sky is measured as its "magnitude." The lower an object's magnitude, the brighter it appears, so objects with negative signs in front of their magnitude numbers below are exceptionally bright.

Enjoyed that little tidbit. I just need a good telescope. Maybe binoculars.
