Washington: There is great news for space lovers around the world. A rare sight is going to be seen in space this week. In the dark of night, 5 planets will be visible in a straight line in space. These planets are – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. All these planets will come in a straight line from the morning of Friday, June 3. This rare sight was last seen in December 2004. Not only this, the distance between Mercury and Saturn will also be very less this year.

According to Sky & Telescope, people who want to enjoy this rare sight will need binoculars. They have to look to the east of the horizon to look for the planet Mercury. According to Space Magazine, as the month of June progresses, the planet Mercury will become brighter, which will make it easier to identify. According to experts, the rest of the planets can be seen continuously without binoculars.

Best time to spot rare coincidences?
Experts say that the best time to witness this rare combination of 5 planets is 30 minutes before sunrise. There is a lot of enthusiasm in the world to see this celestial sight. This sight will be visible all over the world, so there is no need to go anywhere to see it. In the northern hemisphere, people can see these planets from the eastern to the south-eastern horizon. Whereas people present in the Southern Hemisphere can see from the east to the northeast.

However, there is only one condition for the sight of this rare sight, that is, the sky should be clear. This sight will be visible throughout the month of June, so there is no need to worry if you do not see any day. The moon is also going to be involved in this wonderful celebration. Apart from these 5 planets, the moon will also be seen between Venus and Mars on June 24. This special sight can be seen in a great way 1 hour before sunrise. If you miss seeing 5 planets together, then you will have to wait till the year 2040 to see it.
