Five planets -- Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Uranus and Mars -- will line up near the Moon this week, AP News reported.
The best day to catch this lineup is Tuesday. You'll want to look to the western horizon right after sunset, said NASA astronomer Bill Cooke.
All five planets will extend from the horizon line to about half the night sky. But Mercury and Jupiter will quickly descend below the horizon about half an hour after sunset.
You can see this array from anywhere in the world if you look West in a clear sky.
In an interview with AP News, Cooke said that because of the brightness of Jupiter, Venus and Mars, they would be fairly easy to see. Venus will be one of the brightest things in the sky. Mars will find its place in a reddish form. It can be difficult to detect as Mercury and Uranus will be dimmer. That's why binoculars may be needed, Cooke said.
