I love the mystery of the planets and stars. I love witnessing a falling star or watching an eclipse. It feels magical to me.

These planets’ movements are now in the beginning stage of a rare celestial event.

Four planets — Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars are starting to align in the early dawn on Sunday April 24th.

The four planets will form a straight line in the southeastern sky.

All four will be visible to the naked eye.

Space.com also reports that these four planets should be in a diagonal 30-degree alignment on Tuesday, April 26th, just before sunrise.

It is reported that the moon will appear to “dance” among the planets.

The moon will pass under Saturn on April 25th, It will pass below Mars on April 26th, and Jupiter and Venus on April 27th.

If you are interested, head out an hour before sunrise. Look up into the southeast sky where the sun comes up.

You should not require a telescope if the conditions are clear.

You will see Venus, Jupiter, Mars and Saturn in a straight line. And, you will see our earth’s beautiful moon “dancing.”

What a great reminder of the magnificence of our universe.
