For the next few weeks, if you get up in the morning, you’ll be able to see all the planets bar Saturn arrayed along the ecliptic. 

For the last few months, the planets (almost all) have been shy and have been hiding behind our Sol, but this week they’ve decided to show off. 

Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter are visible for the next few weeks and Uranus and Neptune too if you’ve got some binoculars or/and a telescope. 

So get looking!
