Skywatchers to get special treat — five planets and a comet
DENVER -- If you don't mind getting up a bit early -- or sneaking out of the office if you work the overnight shift -- the skies are offering a very special treat for the next few weeks. From Wednesday to Feb. 20, you can see five planets spanning the sky together just before dawn: Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter will all be visible about 45 minutes before sunrise.
