The lowest planet will be Jupiter. Venus will be above it brilliantly shining in white. Then comes the fiery red Mars topped with Saturn which has a yellowish hue. These planets will have the moon as a ‘crown’. Neptune will be between Jupiter and Venus, but to see this planet you need a powerful telescope.
The next big celestial happening will take place on April 27th (4:30 am to 5:30 am). It will be able to be seen by anyone. Venus, the moon, and Jupiter will look like a triangle.
