On March 28, five planets—Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Uranus, Mars, and the Moon aligned in an arc across the evening sky, with some visible to the naked eye. This rare sight is often called 'a planetary parade.'
This planetary alignment is exceptionally unusual since it contains Uranus, one of the hardest planets to spot from Earth.
