We sure do hope you like coffee. Because you are going to need a cup or two tomorrow morning. With the summer solstice happening just recently, the days are getting much longer. Meaning daylight is arriving much earlier each morning. You are going to have to set your alarm to get up extra early tomorrow so that you don't miss the "planet parade."

What's the "planet parade?"

Have you ever heard the phrase "it has to be perfect when the stars align?" Well, tomorrow morning many of the planets of our solar system are lining up across the early morning sky. Everyone from Mercury to Venus, Mars, and even Saturn will join the parade. Along with our old friend the moon.

According to AccuWeather

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn have lined up in the early morning sky, a planetary procession that can be seen above the eastern horizon every morning through the end of June. This long-lasting event will give early risers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sights of the planetary quintet. The crescent moon will fall in line perfectly with the planets before daybreak on Friday, June 24, glowing directly between Mars and Venus.


Don't be super upset if you sleep in tomorrow as the parade can still be seen through the end of the month. Just plan on being up an hour before sunrise to get the best view. Meaning you are probably going to want to be heading outside around 4 am.
