Planets Alignment: 5 planets will party with the moon in the sky today, know when and how to watch the Planet Parade

London: Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Uranus, Mars and Moon, today all the planets will be seen partying in the sky. All these planets will be close to the moon today and this sight will be clearly visible all over the world. All these planets along with the moon will be seen in a line and it is being termed as an extraordinary astronomical event. The most interesting thing is that you will not even need a telescope to see all these planets. Mercury and Uranus are two such planets which will be very difficult to detect. In such a situation, if you want, you can use binoculars or a telescope to see them.

Will disappear in 30 minutes
You can watch this ‘Planet Parade’ after the sun sets on Tuesday. After 30 minutes these planets will start disappearing from the sky. In such a situation, you have to take action very fast. If you missed this view, then in the year 2040 i.e. only after 17 years you will be able to see it. As soon as the sun sets, you will look towards the west. Bill Cook, lead of NASA’s Meteorite Environment Office, said, ‘You can see these planets in a line of 50 degrees or more.’ According to what Bill Cook has said, the planets would be spread about halfway across the sky’s horizon.

Venus the brightest

Venus is called the ‘morning star’ and this planet will appear the brightest. Even if you are in an area where there is no equal light due to pollution, you can still see it. Mars will also be visible and it will be very close to the moon. In India, this scene can be seen from 6.36 pm on March 28 for the next 30 minutes. These planets can be seen in the best way till 7.15 in the evening. The special thing is that Mercury and Jupiter will rapidly come towards the horizon and then disappear after 30 minutes. In India both the planets will disappear at 7:06 minutes.

Planets spread across the solar system
All the planets will look very bright. While seeing Venus, Mars and Jupiter will be special in itself. While you will need binoculars to see Mercury and Uranus. Astronomer Jake Foster of the Royal Observatory Greenwich said this type of alignment is very typical from the perspective of humans from Earth. He told, ‘These planets are not together yet and are spread all over the solar system. But from time to time they come so close to each other in the sky that we can see a lot.
