I’ve read somewhere that the Earth-Moon system could be considered a double planet, the masses being so similar
compared to other planet-moon systems.
So if we do, what a lovely sight of five planets n the sky this morning. Beginning near the meridian, Jupiter is shining bright. Further east, near Spica, we find the planet-formerly-known-as-red, Mars.
Near the Eastern horizon we have our lovely waning crescent Moon. Even further to the east find Venus and Saturn. What a panoramic view. Connect the dots for an insider’s view of the plane of the solar system.
If you missed it this morning, try tomorrow. Set that alarm!
P.S. If you want to set personal record for seeing six planets, look below your feet! There you’ll see the 3rd rock from the Sun.
