Rare 5-planet alignment comes into better view this week

A rare parade of planets is coming into better view in the second half of June, and even the moon will join the show. 

The current early-evening sky is completely devoid of any of the five bright planets you can see with the naked eye (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn). You have to wait until the second half of the night to see any of them, and then they will slowly come into view, one by one, and just before sunrise, all five will be stretched out across the southern and eastern sky.
