Planets all visible in the evening during July

I saw the big 5 all visible by 8pm last night.

Mercury is now visible, low in the west below Venus. Mercury will be visible for most of July.

Jupiter is high in the east and passes over the zenith (in the tropics) in the mid evening.

I thought Saturn looked bright till I saw Mars above the horizon just before 8pm. Yeah, Mars is really bright.
