Starting Wednesday night, we'll be able to see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in the night sky.

This is due to an alignment that hasn't happened in ten years.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Jupiter will rise first followed by Mars, Saturn, Venus then Mercury. The timing of the planets rise will vary each day and depend on location on Earth.

To view all five, you would need to be an early riser, as they can be seen about an hour before dawn.

If you're a novice star gazer, there are numerous apps you can download to your phone to help you including Google Skymap, Cosmos, Planetarium and more. Here's a full list of the different apps.

Happy star gazing.
