Rare 6-planet alignment will occur on June 3rd

• End Times Headlines

This year has already amazed skygazers with a rare solar eclipse and a geomagnetic storm that caused stunning Northern Lights displays worldwide. However, there are still more incredible cosmic displays to come.

Six planets are expected to align next month, creating what the Weather Channel calls a "planetary parade."

The stunning alignment will occur just before sunrise on June 3, 2024. During the solar spectacle, the orbits of Jupiter, Mercury, Uranus, Mars, Neptune, and Saturn will bring the six planets to the same side of the sun.

CBS News previously reported that the planets won't form an actual straight line in space because of their elliptical shapes, but from some angles on Earth, they will appear to be aligned.
