Which planets will align in 2022?
These are the top astronomy events for June 2022, according to AccuWeather. Don't forget to look up this month to see the start of a rare, five-planet alignment grace the night sky. Beginning on Friday, the five planets of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn aligned in planetary order.
When was the last solar alignment?
These planetary alignments are not rare, but they're not regularly occurring, either: The last time five planets aligned in the night sky was in 2020, preceded by alignments in 2016 and 2005. These alignments take time to develop.
