Look Up!

From the Asheville Citizens-Times:
Early Risers looking to the sky will be treated with a view of five planets during the first few weeks of January, according to astronomers at the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute in Rosman.
Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will all be visible - a relatively rare event.
In the predawn hours of New Year's Day, stargazers should be able to see Saturn if they look low in the west. The planet should be visible in the edge constellation of Cancer. At the same time high in the south to the left of the moon, they'll see two bright objects. The brighter of the two is Jupiter.
Searching the sky, you'll also find Venus, Mars and Mercury.
