Five Planets Are Aligning For The First Time In A Decade

No word on what this could mean, but here's hoping the universe is preparing to return David Bowie to us.

  1. 1

    For the first time in a decade, five planets are coming into alignment.

  2. 2

    This will be the first time that Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Venus, and Mercury will all be visible and in line with one another since 2005. The alignment will be visible forty five minutes before sunrise, for at least the next week.

    Jupiter is a little far out, but you get the picture.

    Dr Alan Duffy, who took these beautiful images, says that this "quirk of the universe" is worth getting out of bed early to see. We have to agree.

  4. 4

    If you have a smartphone you can download the SkyEye App to help you navigate the stars. Android users can download that here: Stargazing!
