Celestial spectacle begins

The quartet can be easily seen across the sky theatre for a month with naked eyes as they form spectacular shapes, said Planetary Society Of India General Secretary N Sri Raghunandan Kumar.

The planetary parade of Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter, bunched together, can be seen low in the east direction. Venus and Jupiter will appear close to each other in the night as the two planets are in conjunction, he said.

The two will be seen shining through the eastern twilight only half a degree apart, he said. Also, Mercury and Venus are in conjunction with Jupiter.
