Five Planets
 

Five Planets
 

May 10, 2002
 

In April and May of 2002, all five of the visible planets were lined up in the evening sky, putting on a spectacular show. We would rush up to this picnic area as dusk fell for an unimpeded view of the western sky with cameras and telescopes in hand. Armed with star charts, we were able to know which planet was where, so I could label them on the final print. What made this even more special, is that these planets will not share the same sky again until 2058. The orange twilight glow was not visible with the naked eye.
