Mercury the closest planet to the Sun
Because the planets are always moving, in relation to the stars around them, there is no way I can point
you directly to them without providing monthly or bi-monthly starmaps. Even so you can still find Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn due
to their brightness. It will help to get a copy of Astronomy or Sky & Telescope
magazine for the present month to know where, when, and if these planets are visible.
These magazines provide monthly sky charts showing the planets. A free software program called Home Planet can be very useful for finding Planets. It can be down loaded by following the above link.
