Here’s What You Need To Know About The Five Planet Alignment

Five planets are set to align in the sky this week.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in order, will line up for the first time in 18 years and you won’t need a telescope to see it. Mercury will be the dimmest, so at times it may be tough to see.

The planets will have their peak visibility on Friday, even though they could be seen with binoculars earlier throughout the week.

Experts said if it’s cloudy, the planets still should be visible. The best time to view the heavenly event is about 45 minutes to an hour before sunrise. Set your alarm!
