If you love watching the planets with or without your telescope, then we have a wonderful morning show for you during the month of May in 2011. Take your cup of coffee outside where you can see the horizon, and there is going to be a dance of the planets going on just for you and a few million of your closest friends.
Venus, Mercury, Mars, and Pluto will be performing a beautiful dance in the sky, changing relative positions and forming geometric patterns. On the morning of May 30th, even the moon gets into the dance, as a beautiful crescent sliver hovers among the planets.
So, take a moment in the morning to see a beautiful sight. If you're a night person, either make an exception and wake up early, or stay up for the sunrise. Learn all about the show in the NASA video below.
