The first five planets to be discovered are, naturally, also those visible to the naked eye.

The easiest to identify is Venus, as it is very often seen low on the horizon as the brightest object in the sky (after the Sun) at around dawn, hence it's early name 'The Morning Star'. Following Venus, Jupiter and Saturn also appear as very bright objects in the twilight sky, even though they are much farther from the Earth, they are also much larger and reflect quite a lot of the Sun's rays. Mars is also best viewed in half-light before other stars and the Moon obscure it's light. It can be seen as a fairly bright rusty coloured 'star'. The most difficult to observe is Mercury because of it's apparent proximity to the Sun, but in the right conditions, and with some eye protection, it can be seen with the naked eye.

What other planet is visible to native eye?

MercuryVenusMarsSaturnJupiterI guess you mean "naked eye" (no telescope or other aid).Humans have known about the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter since prehistoric times, as all five are visible to the naked eye. Our solar system's other planets, however, remained unknown till the invention of the telescope. Astronomer William Herschel discovered Uranus in 1781. Mathematician Urbain Jean Joseph Le Verrier predicted the location of Neptune, which was then confirmed by astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle in 1846. Astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh discovered dwarf planet Pluto in 1930.Note: Now that we know where to look, it is just possible to see Uranus with the "naked eye", in good viewing conditions.
