Rare chance to see five planets align in the sky this month

Stargazers are in for a treat this month as five planets in our solar system will line up together.
Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter will march together across the predawn sky and will be visible in the northern hemisphere.
It will be the first alignment of the five visible planets in our solar system since 2020.
The best time to see the rare spectacle will be about 45 minutes before sunrise, so setting an alarm early in the morning is essential.
It could be possible to see them throughout the month of June but it depends on your location and surroundings.
It is thought the end of the month may be best.
The planets will be spread across a wide stretch of sky from east to west and people should look for a steady light to differentiate from stars.
