5 bright planets to align visibly in the sky
It will be possible to see all the five bright planets align together in the sky for the first time in more than a decade.
The five planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, will appear in a line stretching from high in the north to low in the east, around an hour before sunrise from January 20 until the end of February and will be visible across Australia in the dawn sky, reports Tech Insider.
It has been a long time since the orbits of all these five planets have brought them together to the same part of the sky. Try to get a clear open space from where you can see from the north all the way across to the eastern horizon to make the best of the viewing opportunity.
There's still more to come as the planets will be together again this August and will be visible in the evening sky! So stay tuned to make the best of planet watching in 2016.
