See the Moon, Venus and Mercury very close together!
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

The Moon, Venus and Mercury will all be within a mere 5 degrees of each other on February 6, 2016 in the southeast. They will be very low, so you will need to be at a location that has no tall trees or buildings obscuring your view in that direction. All the other planets that are visible to the unaided eye will also be visible farther to the west. Julie and I have been enjoying observing all of these planets for about a week now (as of February 2) during our early morning walks.
