Dance of The Planets
Jupiter, Mercury and Venus will seemingly dance between each other from May 24 and 31. The closest configuration of the planets, being on May 26 and having a linear alignment on the 30th and 31st. Mercury is haulin’ gluteus because it’s orbit is shorter.
The best time to view them will be about 40 minutes after sunset. The images here were taken at the same time each day, as you see the sun sets a little bit later each time. See analemma.This gif was made from screenshots using the Planetarium app // Neave
