The end is near! There's a comet in that alignment too and with it comes an alien invasion.

Thanks for the heads up. What are the prime viewing hours if any? What planets are aligned?

Here in ma, they mentioned a quarter to 6... But I think it depends on the time of sunrise in your area...just get out there about an hour or so before sunrise in your area

Hmmm......if those 5 planets all line up, some of them being the largest planets in the Solar System, will that side of the Solar System become too heavy and tip the whole deal over?

No, the Milkyway galaxy is like a big gyroscope that keeps everything in alignment. Last time I tried to tilt it, it resisted....

Venus is very bright and easy to spot early pre-dawn morning, as long as clouds don't interfere.

 

It's easily the brightest object in the sky following the sun and the moon.

 

To get the proper track to find the other planets, reverse J's image posted earlier. Jupiter will be the first one up and higher in the sky by the time Venus is up-- it will be to the right (south) and higher than the other's.

 

Jupiter is pretty cool to look at. You can see it's 4 moons all in a straight line with a decent telescope.

Thanks guys. These types of astronomical occurrences must have drove the Indian medicine men all puffed out on Mary Jane crazy!
