Mercury is visible after Sunset for first week of June and then it gets close enough to Sun in the sky making it difficult to spot. It will rise in the morning near to end of June but difficult to spot until early July.

Venus is close to Sun in sky as seen from Earth. It will be visible as morning star before sunrise after mid of June.

Mars is visible after midnight in early June. Later part of June it rises after 9PM.

Jupiter is visible entire night rising from East after 10PM

Saturn is following Jupiter. It rises after an hour or so in the East. It is visible entire night. It rises early by end of June to be visible in the East right after Sunset.

Planets follow the Elliptical path in the sky.

Scorpius rises in South sky after Sunset and visible for major part of night. Sagittarius is following behind. Great bear rises in the north sky and visible for major part of night.
