I read about this phenomena in Tuesday's paper, here in New Jersey and, as
it happens, I was able to see 5 of those planets in a nice little line
that evening while driving my kids to the High School.
These planets were in a line at about a 45 degree angle, just below the
crescent moon. Really neat. Last night (Wed), we were only able to see the
top and bottom ones due to cloud cover.
