rare 5 planet alignment, Jan 20 before dawn

Five planets Mercury Venus Mars Jupiter and Saturn will align in a rare show as they are standing on the ecliptic. Being able to see all 5 planets at once hasn’t happened since 2005 and well worth the effort of  getting up around 6:45 am in GMT or equivalent before dawn in your local area. Check on where the Moon will be in the skies.

The alignment will be visible in Britain just before dawn from January 20, we are moving into a Full Moon Jan 23/24  but astronomers say the best view is likely to be on the morning of February 5. 

These are the five classical personal planets in Astrology.
