Here's when to find the line up of Mars, the Moon and Venus during the week of October 16th.

Venus and Mars visible this week

Another fun line up of visible planets will come together this week, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.

The waning crescent moon will move closer to the two planets overnight before sunrise Oct. 16-18. On Oct. 16, the moon will be above the two planets.
