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 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 Planetary Society of India. Kumar said two or three planets are visible in one evening to next day morning, whereas visibility of five planets in one single night is rare. Giving tips, Kumar said: “Look for shining objects in the night sky that are not twinkling. Planets shine, they don’t twinkle or blink like stars.”
