Observing the Planets
Their unique orbits combine to give an endlessly changing pattern of groupings and alignments.  And yes, they are easy to find, even in the center of a city full of lights.  As we approach the winter solstice,  the bright evening planets will be sinking into the Sun.  Venus has jumped into the morning sky, and is dominant in the southeast as the Sun is rising.    The Naked Eye Planets website is a great source for observing tips. The menu bar above will take you to each of the planets.   Clicking on each will take you to a page with details on where to find each for the current month.
