June Will See Planetary Alignments Not Seen Since 2004
Chattanooga, TN – The Pulse:
No telescope needed! The last time the planets aligned in this way, Zuckerberg was launching a thing called Facebook. In the month of June, those in the mainland United States will be able to see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn with their naked eyes. For the best views, you’ll need to head outside about a half an hour before dawn. Significant dates include June 24th, which may be the best day to see Mercury. Break out a pair of binoculars for the best view!
The next time this particular alignment will occur will be in 2040. (newser)
