Through the 12th of May there’s a good chance you’ll be able to look up into the western sky after dusk and see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter AND Saturn, thanks to the alignment! Click here for a picture of the planet layout – seems like it might be easiest to look for Venus and go from there. (I am now wishing I had the humungous telescope that Lara Croft had in the Tomb Raider movie, which also involved a major planetary alignement – LOL – although you can probably see most everything in OUR alignement with the unaided eye – still, what a telescope!) Cool! (link via metafilter)
