One of our most popular posts is about the big moon when it was close to Planet Earth back in April.
This month is also good for star gazing.
Remember…. this interesting past time is man’s oldest hobby.
This week, Jupiter is lining up with Venus, Mercury and Mars. They are visible early in the morning across Australia’s eastern skies.
The alignment of the four planets happens only once every 50 to 100 years.
The last time these planets were observed together was in October 1910.
So get up early this weekend and look low in the sky and to the East before the sun rises.
Leave us a comment, or if you can’t see the planets watch the video instead. ( It’s been too cloudy for us to see the stars this week!)
