    Default All (eye) visible planets in a string...

    I hope my screenshot of Stellarium shows below.. a fairly rare thing, in the morning (for the next few days) one can see all the visible to the eye planets in a line, and the moon is soon to join, to have all natural objects visible to the naked eye visible at once (except the sun of course)...

    Consult the local conditions for best visible time, but should be just before sunrise in clear and away from city conditions. Then there is the SA specter of being mobbed if next to the road - sad... Any good viewing spots near Pretoria that is also safe?

    planets move from east to west , same as the Sun , so early in the morning Mercury will be closest to the east Horizon and the hardest to see , the rest follow the arch of the Sun moving from East to West

    Mercury will rise above the horizon from around 05h20 , so the best time to look will be around 06h20 when its still dark and Mercury will be just ok to see with naked eye , if you have binos that will help

    Venus will be the brightest object in the sky
