Saturn is low in the southwest in the evening sky. The rest of the planets are visible before dawn. Look to the east in the morning. Venus is highest and shines brighter than any star. Jupiter is also bright, although not as bright as Venus, and is lower. Mars is near Jupiter and is fainter than the other two planets, as it is on the opposite side of the Sun right now, but it still has an impressive red color. Much lower in the sky, and not visible until after 6 a.m., is Mercury.
