Cool!
Below is the guide for viewing them:

On this page are details for seeing all five naked-eye planets this evening and every evening into early April.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are five planets visible to the naked eye now. Not until April 2036 will there be another chance to readily see all five naked-eye planets at the same time in the evening.

Pretty amazing!!! I just watched a special on today the lined up planets. The most interesting thing I thought was that Venus is the brightest planet. I'm dragging out my telescope tonight and going to see if I can find the planets:)

Definitely cool.

The guide at that website has a good viewer guide for seeing the planets plus a link to view a guide on Viewing Venus. Apparently Venus goes through phases like the moon.

One is definitely bright you can see right now it is right near the moon.
Guide says mars is to the left of the moon but me and a friend were wondering if it was actually Venus since it is so bright.

If you don't use your telesope for this you won't use it for anything . apparently you can see the rings of saturn with a telescope.
