LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - NOVEMBER 19: The International Space Station (ISS) reflecting light from the sun appears to streak over a windmill at Western Trails Park to the right of the waxing crescent moon and left of the planets Saturn and Jupiter (R) in this 15-second camera exposure on November 19, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The ISS orbits the Earth about every 90 minutes while traveling at about five miles per second. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

Wow!  This is amazing!

  • Keep your eye on the sky this month.
  • Beginning on Friday (6/10), the five planets of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will all be aligned in planetary order.
  • This rare phenomenon has not occurred since December 2004.
  • You’ll need binoculars along with a clear view of the eastern horizon to spot Mercury later this week.
  • Then, as the month goes on, Mercury will become brighter and easier to see.
  • Scientists say the rest of the planets should be consistently visible to the naked eye.
  • You’ll also need to set your alarm for an early morning wakeup call because the best shot to see the spectacular sight is in the 30 minutes before sunrise.
