Five planets visible to the naked eye are ready to line up and march across the sky this summer in an unusual orientation adorned by the light of the moon.

Alignments of the five planets visible without a telescope or binoculars occur irregularly only every few years. The last time it happened was in 2020 and before that in 2016 and 2005, Michelle Nichols, director of public observation at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, told Live Science. Skywatchers can already see the parade of planets moving into place, but all five will be visible from late June to early July.
