A rare astronomical phenomenon & #8211; parade of five planets – The inhabitants of the Earth were able to observe last night

Billions of people managed to capture how Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn lined up in one arc in the sky.

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) showed a photo of the parade planets, which took place on the night of June 23-24. The images were published on Friday, June 24, on the NASA website.

On the frames you can see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, which lined up in one arc in the sky. The Moon, the Earth's satellite, turned out to be next to them.

The parade of planets was most clearly visible from 02.30 to 03.00 Kyiv time. Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn could be seen with the naked eye. The next time such luck will turn up only in 2040. Large parades of planets with the participation of 5-6 or all the planets of the solar system occur once every 18 years.

Next time, earthlings will see Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Saturn line up, between the latter the so-called crescent moon.

It was previously reported that researchers from the University of Hokkaido in Japan, together with NASA scientists, discovered two missing units of DNA and RNA. This discovery shows that genetic units can carry asteroids to help develop life from space on Earth.
