This week, you will see every planet in our Solar System
Solar System All of the planets will be visible until Friday, November 13.
It might be time for the telescope to break out. There will be some unknown sights in the sky this week: all seven of the planets that make up our Solar System will be visible during the day at different times. Venus and Mercury are bright enough to see in the morning, although it will be easier to see Mars, Jupiter and Saturn at night. A guide to viewing all of these planets, along with Uranus, was published by Earth Sky on its website.
Joe Guzman, an astronomer and educator at Chicago’s After School Matters,
has already told his students about a celestial occurrence this week.
“I took the time to get a look at the crescent moon early this morning,” Guzman told CNN.
“And you’ll certainly be able to see Jupiter and Saturn as the sun sets tonight.”
Solar System Why is this happening?
Solar System The visibility of the planets is just a cosmic coincidence.
“It’s the dance of the planets around the sun,” Guzman said.
“It’s a natural phenomenon, and it happens once in a while. it’s not rare, but it is infrequent. It
just kinda happens that they’ll still on this side of the sun, but they’ll start to separate again soon.”
In the meanwhile, Guzman thinks everyone should get their hands on a telescope.
Sky & Telescope announced that since the pandemic started, sales of telescopes have already increased, with businesses seeing a rise in business from 60 percent to 400 percent over the previous year.”
Guzman tells inexperienced sky watchers to be on the lookout for his personal favorite, Saturn.
“Guzman said You can grab its rings very quickly.
“A watch is certainly worth it.”
