You can see every planet in our solar system this week

It might be time to break out that telescope.

Hierdie week, there will be some not so familiar sights in the sky: all seven of the planets that make up our solar system will be visible at various points throughout the day.
Venus and Mercury are bright enough to see in the mornings, while Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be easier to see at night.
Earth Sky published a guide to viewing all of these planets, along with Uranus, on its webwerf.
    Joe Guzman, an astronomer and educator at After School Matters in Chicago, has already told his students about this week’s celestial phenomenon.
    Early this morning, I took the time to get a look at the crescent moon,” Guzman told CNN. “And when the sun sets tonight, you’ll definitely be able to see Jupiter and Saturn.

    Waarom gebeur dit??

    The visibility of the planets is just a cosmic coincidence.
    It’s the dance of the planets around the sun,” Guzman said. “It’s a natural phenomenon, and it happens once in a while. it’s not rare, but it is infrequent. It just kinda happens that they’ll still on this side of the sun, but they’ll start to separate again soon.
    In the meanwhile, Guzman thinks everyone should get their hands on a telescope. Sky & Telescope berig that the sale of telescopes has already been rising since the pandemic began, with companies seeingan increase in business from 60% aan 400% over the previous year.
      Guzman recommends that novice sky watchers be on the lookout for Saturn, his personal favorite.
      You can catch its rings quite easily,” Guzman said. “It’s definitely worth a watch.
