No hope of a clear sky here in Glasgow OP.

What planets are involved?

Not much chance of seeing it here, surrounded by houses and trees!

Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury are the three planets. If you follow the link supplied below it will tell you how to locate them by finding the moon first.

Not sure we'll be able to see them either as we are expecting rain but we'll have a look.

No chance here, the grey skies seem to have taken out long term parking .

B9exchange Mon 11-Jan-21 15:11:43 was a link I found. Suggests you need a clear view of the SSW horizon, which living in a city, we don't have.

Such a shame, I’m in a dark sky zone in the Brecon Beacons but as usual at this time of the year, it’s raining so I won’t get to see it.
