5 Planets Aligned

For the first time in 18 years, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, could all be visible, Mercury the most difficult to see, visible at 4:30am

On 24th of June The moon will also be joining the Planetary Line up

It is not uncommon to see two or three planets close together, but the five that can be spotted with the naked eye have not appeared in order, as viewed from the northern hemisphere, since December 2004.

“This is really cool,” said Prof Beth Biller, personal chair of exoplanet characterisation at Edinburgh University’s institute for astronomy. “We now know of many other stars hosting multiple planets. This is a rare opportunity to see the same thing closer to home, with all five ‘naked eye’ planets in our solar system visible at once.”
