Did you know that for the first time in 11 years you will be able to see 5 of the planets in the sky at the same time? They are called ‘visible’ planets because you can see them just using your eyes; you do not need to use a telescope or other device. The five planets that you can see are Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter. These planets will be visible before dawn from January 20 – February 20, 2016. The next time this will happen again is August 13-19, 2016 when the planets will be visible at dusk.
We hope that you have a noteworthy day at school. Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
