Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Neptune - All visible in the day break sky for the coming weeks at the break of dawn. Alongside the moon.

It seems to be visible with a 'small telescope' or a binoculars? Not sure if that would be so easy.



Venus is, as always, the brightest and most visible of the planets, and it can be your guide to spotting the others. About half way between Venus and the rising sun is Jupiter, the second brightest planet. Mars will be a tiny speck just above Jupiter, and Mercury another tiny speck about half way between Jupiter and Venus. Uranus is slightly more than one binocular field above and to the right of Venus, and Neptune is much farther to the right, about 40 degrees away in Aquarius. The Moon will be just above Venus on Saturday morning, and just above Jupiter and Mars on Sunday morning.

Well, probably everyone here has heard of the phenomenon of all the planets aligning during December 20 - 21, 2012 and how that would indicate or rather pave the way for impending doom and disasters.

At the same time, before people jump, there is also a belief that Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 2012 may mark the beginning of a new era.

well, just 2 of the gazillion new theories of 2012.

Could this be an indication of things to come?
We already have 6 planets in line, like they are reporting for duty well in advance, awaiting the rest




2012 aside, this could actually be great for photographers & astronomers with a majority of celestial bodies from our solar system being more easily accessible.

Could these planets aligning cause any other changes here on Earth?

I guess we will find out soon enough.

People have been saying that something BIG is going to happen on the 29th April (apart from some wedding going on). Whether they have managed to identify that these particular planets will be in alignment and put 2 and 2 together and came out with 5, who knows.

The planets will not be aligned on December 20-21, 2012. The only things that people claim will be aligned are the Earth, Sun, and Galactic Center. And, in fact, these align for 38 years at a time... they've been aligned for about 31 years now, and will continue to be aligned until 2017. Nothing special occurs on December 21, 2012.

Now, the topic at hand: a planetary alignment is much more significant than a "galactic" alignment, but it still presents little catastrophic potential. What can the planets do in a line that they shouldn't also be able to do from all other positions?
The most this presents us is a spectacular view. Alignments are beauty, not beast.

Point taken & i agree. well, we are quite certain of that having been reading stuff all over the place, but you know this is one of the most prominent theories of the 2012 phenomenon.

Agreed again & i hope we can actually see some of the pictures, if not from NASA or other alphabet space agencies but at least from some amateur astronomers.

you can bet your last dollar these can be just as good if not better than the ones by the 'specialists'

really waiting for this one

That's interseting, because all the talk relates to the planets aligning on these dates. Can you post a link regarding what you said? I would like to get an insight into this and be able to shut everyone up. Thanks.

It's strange, I didn't even know about this alignment until I saw this thread. I'm usually pretty on top of these things.
I wish all of the planets were visible...I'd love to be alive to see a 9- or 10-body alignment. But, this works.

Here's the entire solar system: 21 December 2012 (Outer Sol.)

And the inner solar system: 21 December 2012 (Inner Sol.)

Imagine a scene like in Star Wars with 2 suns being visible over the horizon.
if such a spectacle or any similar celestial body phenomenon is to be seen from Earth, it would be worth our life times


and yes, it suddenly came visible to me too.
i should guess if this were known to happen, there would be some more news on this a tad earlier!

I very much doubt it. The distance of the other planets in our solar system is so great that the gravitational, magnetic and radiation effects would be negligible. Whilst each planet does have a gravitational effect on Earth, it is extremely minute and almost undetectable. Even if the gravity of the other planets was somehow magically multiplied together, it would still be less than the gravitational effect of the moon on the Earth

I hear ya! and my logical mind accepts it due to the theories.
But at the same time, the moon itself has some effect on humans, the oceans, etc here on earth.

there are quite a few reports of strange happenings on full moon.
no, i ain't entirely referring to vampires & were-wolves, but other strange incidents which are attributed to coincidence.

Interesting to see

have been watching the night sky for the past week as the International Space Station has been visible passing overhead, which got me curious as to what else I could see and came across this image



On the last three mornings of the month, given a clear low eastern horizon, there will be four planets and a thin crescent Moon visible just above the horizon During the month their relative positions have shifted, so now Jupiter is highest in the sky towards the south. Lying in line down to the horizon will be seen, first Mars, then Venus and finally, just above the horizon Mercury. During the three days the Crescent Moon will pass above them becoming a thinner crescent as it does so. Note: The sky brightness had been reduced to show the planets - you will need binoculars, so cease looking when the Sun has risen!

the site below has some very interesting info for people who live in the United Kingdom

Reckon I am going to have to get up early to see if I can see this!

do you reckon this is going to be visible from all places on Earth?

I have only just started to get interested in these things so I am unable to answer your question but am sure the more knowledgeable members on here will be able to help you

What are the cluster of stars in the left hand of the photograph?

Cool Photo by the way.

TY this is who we are

I'm blessed with clear skies tommorow. I will be heading for the beach I guess. I hope I can pick out jupiter before sunrise but not counting on it.

Its true many planets are aligned, but not on the same side of the sun, a true alignment. Planetary alignments are not rare, in fact quite common. Alignments where the five naked-eye planets cluster together in the sky within a circle 25 degrees or less in diameter once every 57 years, on average. There was one in in 1962 which sent many people into a panic. There was another in 2000. The next time it will happen is September 8, 2040. No such alignment will occur in 2012.

Here's a neat little screen shot of a website you might want to visit, there are many 3D controls for you and you don't need any special software or plugin.

Today/tonight, I positioned my curser at Earth for the callout.
