Rise and shine before the sun tomorrow, grab your binoculars and head outside for some planet-gazing. Skies should be clear an hour or so before sunrise (6 a.m. will do). Look east and find Venus, still brilliant three weeks after its brightest appearance. Close by - to the left and a bit higher - is Saturn. (The bright star Regulus shines above the pair.) Now look straight up and find reddish Mars, gleaming almost directly overhead. That's three of the five naked-eye planets. Enough. Back to bed.
