    View 4 of the brightest planets in a single, short session this week!

    At dusk, brilliant Venus will be visible low in the western sky. Jupiter will be located higher in the south-west, while Saturn can be seen in the south-east. Once it gets dark, Mars will be visible coming over the horizon in the south-east.

    Happy Planet Hunting!

    Yeah, it can be done. Although Venus is low for me now and seriously boils away in the eyepiece lol. It's a pity as it's only three days away from dichotomy.
