With The Moon In The

The quarter-phase moon

 points to a stunning set of planets low in the sky: Saturn, Mars, Venus and Jupiter.

The Moon will be in its

last-quarter phase just to the right of ringed Saturn, and if you know where to look you can spot three more worlds with your naked eye.

Mars, an orangey dot,

 will be below and to the left of Saturn. Then you will see bright Venus further to the left, and giant Jupiter at the leftmost end of the group.

Binoculars or a telescope will show

 you a little more detail on most of these worlds. You can likely spot Saturn's rings and some of the moons of Jupiter with most telescopes

Most of these worlds

will be pretty bright, particularly Venus (magnitude -4.4), Mars (magnitude 1.1) and Saturn (0.9)

 Such alignments only

will be pretty bright, particularly Venus (magnitude -4.4), Mars (magnitude 1.1) and Saturn (0.9)
