Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus will be visible every morning for about a week, an alignment known as a "planetary crossing".

While it is common for multiple planets to appear in the sky at the same time, it is rare for six planets to align.

Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus will meet on June 3 and 4, 2024 to create a rare sight in the sky.

Although the planets will not form a straight line, they will be close enough to create a stunning visual feast.

At the beginning of June, about an hour before sunrise, this alignment will be visible to the naked eye and every morning for a week.

While it is possible to see Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn with the naked eye, Uranus and Neptune are much fainter than the other planets and may require binoculars or a telescope to see them clearly.

Similar alignments will occur in the coming months. On August 28, 2024 and January 18, 2025, large, six-planet alignments can be observed in the pre-dawn hours. There will also be a full planetary alignment on the evening of February 28, 2025, with all seven other planets appearing in the sky at the same time.

HOW TO WATCH?

The conjunction will be visible from many parts of the world on June 3. The rising and setting times of the planets will vary depending on their location. You can use various phone applications to get this information.
