Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Uranus and Mars will line up near the moon tonight.

The five-planets can be seen anywhere on Earth, as long as you have clear skies and a west view.

The planets will stretch from the horizon line to around halfway up the night sky. But don’t wait too long: Mercury and Jupiter will quickly dip below the horizon around half an hour after sunset.

Venus will be one of the brightest things in the sky, and Mars will be hanging out near the moon with a reddish glow. Mercury and Uranus could be trickier to spot, since they will be dimmer. You’ll probably need to grab a pair of binoculars.

Look to the western horizon right after sunset.

There’s a blood donor clinic tomorrow at the Portuguese Canadian Club from 1-7pm.

No walk-in appointments are available. Book your appointment at, call 1-888-2-DONATE or use the apps.

Looks like the cost of lettuce will be going up.

And it could stay that way into the summer. Flooding in a California farming area will have an effect on the food chain.

The Salinas Valley, where a vast amount of lettuce and other produce eaten in North America is grown every year, has seen severe rain and storms since the beginning of the year. That is the same region where disease hit lettuce crops last fall, creating severe shortages and high prices.
