At the moment Saturn is just dropping out of view in the evening sky. We'll have to wait until the end of the year for it to reappear in the morning.
The remaining major planets are all in the morning sky and best seen pre-dawn. Jupiter is blazing bright, can't miss it. Starts rising about midnight but not good until 2-3am. Mars is a real challenge for the moment. It's low down in the pre-dawn sky and it's apparent size is only the same as Uranus. This is one for much later in the year and going into next year.
