Just recently, an unusual annular Eclipse of the Sun took place, and again astronomers report that the inhabitants of the Earth are waiting for another important astronomical phenomenon – a full parade of planets, APA reports citing Orient.
It will take place on July 4, when all the planets of the Solar system – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and even the dwarf planet Pluto – will line up in one row. From Earth, it will look like a chain of large bright stars located above the horizon.
The last such parade of planets took place in 1982, and the next one is not expected until 2161.
On the night of July 4, 2020, there will also be an eclipse of the Moon. However, it will only be visible in North America, South America and Africa.
Astronomers are waiting for both phenomena with impatience – on this day, a number of studies are planned to find out the influence of cosmic energy on earth’s processes. Astrologers are afraid of the upcoming parade of planets. However, against the background of other phenomena in 2020, they can be understood.
This year is generally rich in interesting astronomical events. On July 14 and 20, respectively, two largest planets in the Solar system – Jupiter and Saturn – will shine with all their might. The giants will reach their maximum brightness within a year and will be visible to the naked eye, and many more details of the celestial bodies will be visible through Amateur telescopes.
The scientific world is not afraid of fears and prophecies about the upcoming event, since there have been a huge number of different-scale planet parades in the entire history. Science persuades with facts – parades of planets cannot negatively affect the life of the Earth, its orbit and magnetic field.
