Sky gazers are up for a treat this week as five planets of our solar system will be visible in the night sky for the next few days.

According to scientists, four planets — Venus, Mercury, Mars, Saturn — will be visible in the evenings while Jupiter can be seen in the morning.

“Mercury, which is always hidden in the Sun’s glare would be visible up to April 10 whereas other four planets can be spotted for many months to come,” said N Sri Raghunandan Kumar, general secretary of the Planetary Society of India.

Kumar said that two or three planets are visible from evening to next day morning, whereas visibility of five planets in one single night is rare.
