Starting Wednesday and lasting for about one month, five planets - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will all be visible in the morning sky.
Moreover, the planets are expected to be quite bright and lined up diagonally, with Mercury on the left.
Planets can be distinguished from stars because they tend to shine more steadily without the twinkling associated with starlight.
According to Earthsky.org, this will be the first time since early 2015 to view the planetary alignment.
