Five Different Planets Will Align In The Kansas Night Sky During An Incredibly Rare Display

No matter what age you are, the night sky is a fascinating thing. It’s incredible to look up and think how much is going on up there and how small we really are here on planet Earth. Looking up at the night sky is going to be exceptionally impressive this month, though, because we’re being treated to a rare astronomical display. Five different planets will be aligned in a “planetary parade” that is incredibly rare. The best part about this occurrence is you don’t even need any special equipment to witness it – no telescope or special binoculars required! Just wake up early and head out to a dimly-lit area to check out the Kansas sky.

Are you planning to set your alarm to view this celestial event in the Sunflower State? We’ve got some great dark sky parks in Kansas that are fantastic spots to view the planetary parade!
