It will be possible to see all five planets that are visible to observers from Earth with the naked eye: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will line up. They can be seen in order of increasing distance from the Sun, from left to right from the horizon line. The first will be Mercury (58 million kilometers from the star), and the last – Saturn (1.4 billion kilometers).

The parade of all five planets is a rather rare occurrence. It was last seen in 2004.

Recall On the night of May 15-16, a total lunar eclipse took place. The inhabitants of the Earth were able to see the “bloody moon”.
