Five Planets Visible

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Five planets are arrayed across the evening sky in a spectacular night show that won't be back for another three decades.

Seems to me I remember see these five within the last year or two, with the naked eye and was even able to point them out in the metropolitan area. I know for sure though that I saw six planets that night.

*** UPDATE *** graphicswith relative locations of planets and when to see.
