The world is all braced up to witness yet another cosmic procession after the moon and Venus shone brightly together during a rare conjunction a few days back. Yes! you heard it right. Termed as 'Parade of the planet' people around the world will witness a rare cosmic phenomenon in which 5 planets will line up with the moon. Notably, a few days back, Venus was lined up beneath the moon forming what appeared like an inverted chandrabindoo. Not only this, the phenomenon took place on the day of Ramadan and Chaitiya Navratri in India making people post photos of the cosmic phenomenon on social media. Now, coming back to 5 planets' alignment or parade of planets, below is everything you need to know if you want to watch it-

When and how to watch the rare parade of planets?

Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Uranus, and Mars will line up with the Moon in the skies on March 28. The Moon will join these planets in the skies as it continues to move away from Venus after the dazzling display that was seen across the world just a few days ago. While the five planets will be best seen on March 28, astronomers and astrologers will be able to see one more planet in the skies today as Saturn appears in the afternoon. However, a binocular will be required for that. Coming to 5 planets lineup timing, they will line up from the horizon beginning with Jupiter, which could be seen around 7:30 pm in the evening sky, just after sunset. This will be followed by Venus, Uranus, Moon, and Mars going upwards.

As per reports, the planets will stretch from the horizon line to around halfway up the night sky. However, people looking forward to witness it should keep timing in consideration. Mercury and Jupiter will quickly dip below the horizon around half an hour after sunset. The five-planet spread can be seen from anywhere on Earth, as long as you have clear skies and a view of the west. While Jupiter, Venus, and Mars could be seen by the naked eye due to their higher brightness, however, Mercury and Uranus could be trickier to spot, since they will be dimmer. You might need binoculars to see the two planets in the evening sky. Venus will be one of the brightest things in the sky, and Mars will be hanging out near the moon with a reddish glow. Uranus could be seen with a greenish glow just above Venus.
