New ‘guest’ today

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn
have aligned in an arc formation for the first
time in 18 years. Today, they will be joined
by the crescent moon for a truly celestial view.

Moon for Earth

The five planets have lined up from left to
right in the southeastern sky in their orbital order. The moon will slot in between Venus
and Mars, almost as a substitute for Earth.

How to watch?

This alignment will be best visible at around 4am. Just find a high ground and look toward the eastern horizon. The ‘planetary parade’
will be visible with the naked eye.

Which planets will
be visible?

Saturn will be the first to become visible
around midnight, followed by Jupiter and
Mars. Venus will appear at around 3am
while Mercury will peek at around 3:40am.
