It’s a rare sight: it can only be seen once every 18 years.

During this June, it will be possible to enjoy with the naked eye the alignment of five planets in the sky: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

They are Earth’s closest neighbors – and to keep an eye on them, you don’t need to use telescopes or binoculars, just get up half an hour before sunrise and get a clear (clear) sky.

Although the quality of observation is better in rural areas – which tend to have darker skies – the view can be admired from the cities.
