Get the telescopes ready: Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter are all about to be visible at the same time.
On Wednesday, Jan. 20, the five bright planets will be visible from Earth, and the showing will last about a month.
Four of the five have already been visible in the early morning sky, but Mercury will join the group shortly, completing the five visible planet grouping. (Video via NASA)
