Take a look at the sky! 👀

All through the month of June, we’ll be capable to see 5 of the closest planets with a unadorned eye: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Not solely that, they’ll line up in planetary order (aka by their distance to the Solar).

A correct assembly with the planets, with out the middleman of a display screen. It’s a as soon as in an 18-year alternative to greet the planets in particular person. An event price getting up for.
