Tonight's Sky for November 5: 5-Body Cosmic Lineup


This morning, one will be treated to a very unique meet-up of celestial bodies along the Ecliptic Plane that consists of 3 planets, a star, and the Moon.

So, what's there to see?

First of all, to see the show, go out in t he predawn hours and look East. That done, find the Moon, which is the second highest object in the line. Moon found, look above to find a bright blue star, which is Regulus, alpha Leo. Dropping below the Moon, the three bright 'stars' are actually planets, more specifically Jupiter, Mars, and Venus in that descending order.
