The stars won't be the only ones who are big and bright in the Texas sky! Get ready sky watchers, a super exciting celestial event will grace the Texas skies just in time for summer and the good news is that this time, you won’t need special glasses or an exact location to see it!

Mark your calendars for June 3rd as a large planetary alignment will put Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune on full display. This is known as a planet parade, and it will be mostly visible to the naked eye just before dawn on June 3rd.

Mars, Earth and the Moon.

This is great news for some of us who missed both the total solar eclipse and the northern lights when they appeared in the Texas skies last month! By the way, if you did miss the northern lights, I have good news for you which you can check out here!

This alignment also happened in 2022, and it looked like this:

While this sounds exciting, at least one news outlet has already informed us that this alignment isn't all too rare or impressive! Forbes, instead, called it "disappointing" and reports that, technically, you'll only be able to see two planets at best, and you'll probably need high-powered binoculars or a telescope to even get to see Uranus and Neptune! Also, the next time this happens will be closer than we think, on August 28.

Forbes also states that what will be more impressive is that between May 31 and June 2, a waning crescent moon will be visible close to Saturn and Mars and you'll be able to see the moon's phases. Find out more about it here.

Despite Forbes downplaying the event, it's still a fantastic opportunity for stargazers to look up and see these planets align without telescopes.
