Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are in the process of aligning for the first time in nearly two decades.

The alignment of the five planets has not been seen in 18 years, and this month will be the perfect time to see what is called the “Parade of Planets,” according to a report.

Those who want to witness the “Parade of Planets” will not require a telescope to do so, as the alignment will be visible to the human eye, the report noted.

However, Mercury will be the most difficult to see due to its dim nature.

As June progresses, Mercury will become brighter as it appears further above the horizon every night.

Friday will be the best day to see the planet parade, according to the report.

The waning crescent moon will also join the lineup on Friday, and the best time to see the grouping will be approximately one hour before sunrise or just before 5:00 a.m.
