A sky-full of planets!

Tonight - and for a few nights to come - Mars, Neptune and Venus are visible near the crescent Moon. You'll need binoculars or a telescope to see Neptune, but it's a great chance to observe this faint body with Mars as a marker. There's also a faint comet to the west of Venus and Jupiter is still a bright object in the dawn sky!
