Enjoy the sight of Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune in a single line

BengaluruSky watchers, get ready for a planetary parade of six planets, a celestial event on June 3. People will be able to see Jupiter, Mercury, Mars and Saturn with the naked eye. Those with high-powered binoculars or a telescope will also be able to peep at Uranus, which will be located near Mercury and Neptune, that will be near Saturn.

 This is the second planet parade to occur this year. The last one was during 2024 solar eclipse. People who were in the path of totality could spot Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and Mars right in the middle of the eclipse, although Mars and Saturn may have been a bit more difficult to spot. Venus will also be there, but will be impossible to see because it’s right next to the sun.

There are a total of five such events till 2025: June 3, 2024, Aug. 28, 2024, Jan. 18, 2025, Feb. 28, 2025 and Aug. 29, 2025. The Feb. 28, 2025, date is notable because all seven planets will be visible at the same time.

How to view?: One has to choose a clear viewing spot, unobstructed view of the horizon. Places such as hills or open fields which are away from city lights are ideal to view the celestial phenomenon.
