Look up, Melbourne – the planets are aligning in August

The evening sky in August will feature a rare alignment of the five visible planets.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will all be visible from about 6.30pm each night.

Astronomer Dr Alan Duffy told Ross and John it won’t happen again until October 2018.

Dr Duffy said he doesn’t think the alignment will have an impact on us here on Earth.
