Here’s the best time to see the 5 planets line up in a rare parade this week

NEW ORLEANS (VGNO) – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn lined up this month for the first time in 18 years. This week will offer a great time to watch the parade of the planet.

You will not need a telescope to see rare groups of planets, because everything will be visible to the naked eye. However, it could still be difficult to see Mercury because of how obscured it is.

As we approach the end of June, Mercury will become brighter as it gradually climbs above the horizon every night, according to Ski and Telescope.

The best day to watch will be Friday, June 24, when the waning crescent will join a number of planets. Looking to the southeast, the Moon will appear between Venus and Mars.

The best time to look at the sky will be about 45 minutes to about 1 hour before sunrise by the end of June. Keep in mind that June has some of the earliest sunrises of the year, so that means the ideal time to watch is just before 5am

This “parade of planets” has not been seen from Earth since 2004 and will not be repeated until 2040, experts say.

Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will still be visible most of the morning in July, but the group of planets will expand further and further as the moon progresses.
