The ‘Summer Of Planets’ Just Began. Here’s When To Get The Best Views Of Venus, Jupiter, Saturn And Mercury

The “Christmas Star” conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn was, rare, auspicious and ages ago. What planet can you see tonight?

That depends on when you look—and how late at night you look—but as this summer gathers pace, the planets are going to become brighter and much more convenient to see.

Planets visible tonight from across Earth include Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, though none of them are in prime position (check planet-rise/planet-set times for your location).

However, come the end of June Venus will be high in the sky and easy to see right after sunset-as it is right now, albeit low on the horizon—and both Jupiter and Saturn will be visible by midnight.
