Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn Are About To Align
This month we will get to see an incredible moment where Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn – the five planets observable from Earth by simple naked eye – will appear in a line from the horizon to the Moon. The placement of these five earthly neighbors will be noticeable from Wednesday, January 20 to Saturday, February 20. Dr. Tanya Hill, senior supervisor at the Melbourne Planetarium, said that if you don't get to see the alignment this month, you’ll be again get a chance to see it again in August of this year, and then once more in October 2018.
“There are only a few amazing things in the night sky that can be seen without any equipment,” Dr. Duffy said, adding that this is “something well worth seeing.”
