Planetary alignment

Since the next few mornings are scheduled to be cloudy / rainy, today was an opportunity to check out the beginnings of the five planet alignment (involving Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) that will occur towards the end of January.

The sky wasn't particularly clear and a near-full Moon made seeing less than optimal, but I could see four of them - Mercury was still loitering invisibly in the glow from the below-horizon Sun...
