Jack Names the Planets

There's your obscure indie-rock reference for the day.
Getting up at 5:30 has at least one advantage. Today I was able to see the alignment in the sky that has 5 planets visible just before sunrise. Well...I saw 4 of them. Tomorrow I might get out a little earlier with binos to try to spot Mercury which is unfortunately low on the horizon and just above the lights of the city. I was, however, able to pick out Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter. OK. Inster joke about Uranus here. *snerk*
