Five Planets To Align In Early Morning Sky: How to watch, dates, time

This is going to be a dream come true for sky watchers across the world. As many as five planets of our solar system will be visible to naked eyes for the next one month.

The spectacle that begins on January 20 will continue till February 20 without any break. But if you want to watch it, you will have to come out of your bed before day break in extreme cold.

Nonetheless, for diehard sky watchers either getting up in the middle of the night or facing extreme cold are no exception. They will do it without giving a second thought.

3 Planets togehterThough the appearance of one or two planets in the sky is no big deal, five planets being visible simultaneously is rare. The last time it happened was in the year 2005, some 11 years ago.

It must be added there that due to their sizes and distances from Earth, only five planets can be seen in the sky with the naked eye — Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. (Sorry Uranus and Neptune. And Pluto. You’re still a planet in our hearts.) Beginning January 20, all five of the visible planets will be visible in the early dawn hours, according to EarthSky. And they will all appear in a line as well, creating a fascinating display. Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn have all been visible in the sky late at night, but because of Mercury’s orbit, it will start rising in the sky in the early morning hours, EarthSky says.
