See Lotsa Planets (Saturn at midnight?)
For once in my life I have a hig up bedroom facing distant east horizon - sunrises, for tha sodden mind...
hope to see Mercury
Saturday, May 7, though the mornings before and after should be almost as good. You will need a low, cloudless eastern horizon.
First to rise will be Venus, about an hour before sunrise -- check your local paper for local sunrise time.
Venus will be joined by Jupiter about 5 to 10 minutes later. Jupiter will appear about 4 degrees (half a binocular field) to Venus' left. Your fist held out at arm's length covers about 10 degrees of the night sky.
A few minutes after Jupiter's appearance, Mercury will rise directly below Venus. About 5 minutes after that, Mars will join the other three. The Red Planet will appear another half binocular field to the left of Jupiter. [Skywatching Tips: Viewing Planets in 2011]
