(UNDATED) - For the first time in 11 years, stargazing should be able to see five planets together in the night's sky.

If you face South, the brightest object in the sky should be Jupiter. Following a line across the sky and to your right and you'll see Mars, Saturn, Venus and close to the horizon will be Mercury.

The five planets haven't appeared together in the night sky for 11 years and should be visible until the middle of February. The best viewing times should be right before dawn, when Mercury is at its highest.
