VSIt will be worth waking up early tonight, because a very rare phenomenon will occur in the sky. Tomorrow morning, before dawn, five planets of our solar system can be observed with the naked eye in the sky. This was reported by Het Laatste Nieuws. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn can be observed with the naked eye. This alignment of the planets has been visible since the beginning of June, but it will be particularly observable tonight. With a telescope, it will also be possible to see Neptune and Uranus.



To be in the best conditions to observe this rare phenomenon, it is better to raise your head before sunrise, i.e. before 5:24 a.m. The planets can be observed in the sky from northeast to southeast. The Moon will be between Venus and Mars. Mars will be particularly difficult to distinguish, because it is close to the horizon line.

The phenomenon was observable for the last time in 2004 and it will be necessary to wait until 2040 for it to recur. A rare phenomenon that is therefore worth observing if you have the opportunity.
