They will line up in their distance from Earth in this order; Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

Just look into the east and southeastern sky and weather conditions look great.

Mercury has been a little faint this week, but it will rise high enough above the horizon by Thursday and Friday, to be visible.
