The four major planets (venus, mars, jupiter, and saturn) are often the brightest things in the sky. So if you identify the brightest stars visible that night, and point your telescope at them, you'll be able to tell which ones are stars, and which are planets (planets actually show up as a something other than a bright point of light).<br /><br />Remember, not all of these will be visible at any one time (which ones, and when, change slowly over the months).<br /><br />As for what's up and where, right off hand I don't remember.<br /><br />If you go to sky and telescopes website, they have an interactive online starmap that'll show you where they are. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p align="center"><font color="#c0c0c0"><br /></font></p><p align="center"><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">--------</font></em></font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">--------</font></em></font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">----</font></em></font><font color="#666699">SaiphMOD@gmail.com </font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">-------------------</font></em></font></p><p><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">"This is my Timey Wimey Detector.  Goes "bing" when there's stuff.  It also fries eggs at 30 paces, wether you want it to or not actually.  I've learned to stay away from hens: It's not pretty when they blow" -- </font></em></font><font size="1" color="#999999">The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>
