This week, there will be some unfamiliar sights in the sky: seven planets will appear in different places during the day
Venus and Mercury are bright to see in the morning, while Mars, Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn are easy to see at night.
Joe Guzman, an astronomer and teacher at After School in Chicago, has already told students about this week’s celestial phenomenon.
“This morning, I took the time to see the crescent moon,” Guzmn told CNN. “You can definitely see Jupiter and Saturn when the sun goes down tonight.”
Why is this happening?
The visibility of the planets is just a cosmic coincidence.
“It’s the dance of the planets around the sun,” Guzman said. “It’s a natural phenomenon. It happens once. It’s not rare, but it’s very rare. They can still be in this part of the sun, but they start to separate soon.”
Guzman recommends that there should be new astronomers to search for his personal favorite Saturn.
“You can catch its rings very easily,” Guzman said. “This is definitely a must see.”
Edit: This story has been updated this week to include Neptune as one of the planets visible in the sky.
