Three planets - Saturn, Venus and Mercury -- will align around sunset tonight.  Look towards the western sky.

The three planets have been forming a triangle for the past few nights, but Monday night they will line up within a tenth of a degree.  They'll be visible without the aid of a telescope or binoculars.

Fun Fact: The closest planet to the sun - Mercury - is not the hottest.  Venus is. The surface temperature of Venus is 870 degrees Fahrenheit.   That's hot enough to melt lead.
