See 5 Bright Planets in Night Sky—First Time in 8 Years For the first time in almost a decade, sky-watchers this week will be able to see all five naked-eye planets over the course of one night for several nights in a row.

 Animal Rescue Sofia The cold weather combined with so much snow and ice is not only unpleasant for the birds, but also dangerous for their lives. A large part of their food supplies is covered with a thick layer of ice and snow.
