Five planets were visible at the same time in May 2002. Next case is expected in 2040. From the left: Jupiter (bright on the top), Saturn (lowest in the triangle), Mars (highest in the triangle), Venus (bright) and finally Mercury on the right bottom and quite dim. (To the left and up from the triangle, a star from Taurus is also visible). For larger size, click here.
