When planets align

Looking at John’s phone last night, I realized three planets were very close together in the morning sky and that if we got up around 5 AM, we should be able to locate Mercury (tough with the naked eye unless you are absolutely positive where it is).  In the wide shot, the top large dot is the Moon.  As you move down and to the left, the first bright dot is Jupiter.  Toward the bottom, three points line up.  Those three planets from top to bottom are Mars, then Venus (in the middle, the brightest) and then finally Mercury (faint and at the bottom).
