I've been putting together another planetary alignment chart (like this one) and next year is filled with planetary alignments and conjunctions. There's a particularly nice grouping just over a year from now in the morning sky featuring four planets, Regulus and our moon.
Here's a rendition of the eastern sky before sunrise on October 10th 2015, when Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter are all visible.
The only naked eye planet not in the scene is Saturn, which unfortunately is visible in the evening sky.
