Rare planet alignment Mars-Venus-Saturn-Jupiter on 20th Jan 2016 from Thiruvananthapuram Kerala INDIA

For the first time in more than a decade, ‪#‎Mercury‬, ‪#‎Mars‬, ‪#‎Venus‬, ‪#‎Saturn‬ and ‪#‎Jupiter‬ — the five ‪#‎planets‬ bright enough to be seen with an unaided eye — was visible at once in the sky.

Missing mercury in the in the image because the sky was super cloudy and mercury was too feeble. The image looks too wide as Venus and Jupiter were at both ends of the field.

Mercury will appear lowest to the horizon, and its faint light will be hardest to spot in the southeastern sky (in the Northern Hemisphere). Then, from left to right (from southeast to southwest), you'll be able to see Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter, in a line that roughly traces the path the sun will take through the day.

The image is taken from the top of Thejaswini Building, Technopark, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, INDIA at 5:40AM on 20th Jan 2016.
