n this artist's impression supplied by the ESO (European Southern Observatory) on April 25, 2007, the planetary system around the red dwarf, Gliese 581, is pictured showing what astronomers believe is the most earth like planet found outside our solar system to date. Using the ESO 3.6-m telescope in Chile, astronomers have uncovered the planet which could have water running on its surface. The planet orbits the faint star Gliese 581, which is 20.5 light-years away in the constellation Libra.

Earth Sky reported that Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter are the ones that will peek out at dusk and nightfall. The remaining two, Venus, and Mars, will be visible in the early morning.

They can be seen near the star Pica in the constellation Virgo. Scientists said that these "bright" planets are visible in the naked eyes. 
Ancient people have been watching them as guides ever since the time immemorial.

What will they look like?

Unlike in the animated movie "Hercules," these five bright planets will not be perfectly aligned. They'll be scattered in the night sky.

In this handout digital illustration released on September 15, 2011 by NASA, the newly-discovered gaseous planet Kepler-16b orbits it's two stars. NASA's Kepler Mission discoverd the world orbiting two Stars, the larger a K dwarf and the smaller a red dwarf.

Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are the superior planets, while the inferior ones are Mercury and Venus. The brighter planets are orbiting the sun outside Earth's orbit, while the remaining two planets are circling the Sun inside Earth's orbit.

How to see the five planets

According to Life Hacker's latest report, people don't have to stay up so late just to see all the five planets. They can even view them without using binoculars or any telescopes.

All they need is to open their eyes and use them. Once it is dusk, the brightest planet you'll see in the eastern half of the sky is Mars.

On the western part of the sky, Jupiter will be the brightest one. You can use the Red Giant to look for Saturn, which is roughly five degrees away from Jupiter. 
When the dawn seeps in, Venus will be the brightest of them all. You can use this planet to find Mercury, which will appear below it an hour or more before sunrise.

Although they're visible, you can still use any equipment that can give you a better angle. You can even use your camera to capture the special event.
