Don’t forget to look toward the night sky tonight to witness a fete rarely seen when five planets line up near the moon.
Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Uranus and Mars will line up near the moon, and tonight is considered the best night to catch the group. NASA astronomer Bill Cooke says you’ll want to look toward the western horizon right after twilight.
Keep in mind, Mercury and Jupiter will quickly dip under the horizon in about half an hour after sunset.
Clear skies permitting, this phenomenon will be visible from anywhere on earth for a short time.
According to astronomers, groups of planets line up in the sky from time to time, and a five-planet line up was witnessed in the summer of 2022. Another line up is expected in June.
