The Moscow Planetarium Astronomical Center announced that a distinctive and rare astronomical phenomenon will appear in the sky today.

The center's astronomer, Ludmila Koshman, said: “On Monday, June 3, four planets will line up side by side in a 20-30 degree sector, forming a small astronomical display in the sky. These planets are Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, and Uranus, but they will not be visible to the naked eye. Such phenomena occur once every 20 years.

She added: "In addition to the four planets that will line up next to each other, Mars, Neptune, and Saturn will also be on one side of the sun, and they will be joined by the moon, which will appear near Mars on Monday."



The scientist pointed out that the alignment of five planets in a sector of 20-30 degrees is considered a large display of the planets called “the great alignment,” and this happens much more rarely than the alignment of 4 planets.

The phenomenon of planetary alignment occurs because all the planets of the solar system revolve around the sun in one way or another on a flat plane called the “ecliptic circle,” and sometimes some planets meet on one side of the sun as they move in their orbits.
