Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Mercury AND Uranus to align in UK skies TOMORROW

  • June 23, 2022

“The planets are easy to pick out even in the relatively light summer sky. Unlike stars, they don’t appear to twinkle, and Mars is noticeably orange, whereas Saturn is faintly golden.

“The inner planets, Mercury and Venus, don’t get very high above the horizon before sunrise with Mercury, in particular, climbing less than eight degrees before it fades out of view.

“To appreciate them, you’ll need a very low – preferably flat – eastern horizon, free from obstructions like trees or buildings. It may be worth scoping out a good viewing spot ahead of time to improve your chances.”

Amateur astronomer and science communicator Kevin Walsh added that you’ll be able to see the phenomenon if “you look due East about 45 minutes before sunrise”.
