5 Bright Planets Visible in the Sky for the First Time in 10 Years
For the first time in 10 years, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter will all be visible from Earth in a diagonal row from Wednesday, January 20, to Saturday, February 20.
"Essentially a quirk in the universe," Dr. Alan Duffy, research fellow at Swinburne University in Melbourne, Australia, told Australian Geographic. Duffy added the planets' alignment was "something well worth seeing."
Jupiter will be the first to rise, then Mars, Saturn, followed by the brightest planet Venus, and then Mercury. Exact timings vary each day based on where you are located (check out these stargazing apps to search for the planets).
