5 planets are lining up in the night sky
The alignment has been setting up for months, and June is the time to catch the view
A planetary alignment that has been developing for months is finally here.
Depending on local viewing conditions, Mercury may now be visible alongside
Saturn, Mars and Jupiter in a march across the predawn sky, visible from the Northern Hemisphere
. It's the first alignment of the five visible planets in our solar system since 2020.
This is early morning, so you do have to set the alarm in order to do it
