For the first and most likely only time in our lives Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and Mars will tomorrow morning all be in alignment to be viewed without a telescope.
At 5am, for the first time in more than 100 years, the four planets will be aligned.
Sydney Institute of Astronomy Associate Professor John O’Byrne says it is a spectacle that should not be missed.
“It will be certainly a spectacular sight,” he said. “It’s worth scraping yourself out of bed for I think, it’s not something that too many people will see in their lifetime again,” he said.
He says to keep an eye out in the north-eastern sky for Venus and Jupiter two very bright planets close together.
“It’s one of the interesting things that the skies do to us from time to time and unfortunately in our modern life, living in cities for many of us we are not as aware of it as we perhaps could be.”
Astrologer Jeanni Monk says the alignment in Aries should be a positive thing.
“With all the planets lining up like that, it indicates that we’re in a time of really needing to make decisions in our lives,” she said.
“There’s a lot of Karmic cleansing going on in the sense that people are coming back into our lives, there could be family issues.
“I think it’s a time for being aware of how we are in our relationships.”
