October is the month of Mars. Like a glowing coal it stands out in the eastern sky during the evening hours, especially during the first half of the month when it will glow brighter and appear bigger at any time until September Mars will be closest to Earth on the 6th and arrives at opposition to the sun on the 13th when it rises around sunset and moves across the sky all night. Meanwhile, Jupiter a bit dimmer than Mars for much of this month , and mellow, yellow Saturn sitting off to its left, begin to draw noticeably closer to each other, particularly as October winds down. During the waning hours of the night, Venus dazzles in the east-northeast. Finally, there is Mercury, which is visible with difficulty very low in the west-southwest right after sunset during the first week of October.

Just before sunrise each day until Sunday, July 19, five planets will be visible to the naked eye at the same time, Jamie Carter reports for Travel and Leisure. Most of the planets in the solar system are visible with the naked eye—only Neptune and Uranus evade unequipped stargazers. Try to choose a location where the horizon is clear. Mercury is the most elusive planet to spot, as it appears close to the horizon and only briefly because of its close orbit to the sun. About 45 minutes before sunrise, Mercury will appear in the northeast. To locate it in the sky, try measuring about four finger widths to the left of the moon, suggests Chris Vaughan at Space.

Jupiter is one of the brightest objects in the night sky. Look for it in July. Jupiter should be the easiest to spot — the only celestial objects that are brighter in the night sky are the moon and Venus and occasionally Mars. Astronomer Joe Guzman captured the two planets in a triangle formation with the moon on Monday.
