This time, Mercury's made a decision to join the party, with the three planets appearing close together in a rare triple conjunction tonight (Sunday 10 January). Gazers should seek out the rare, planetary alignment no later than 45 minutes after sunset, according to EarthSky.
"A grouping of three planets in a circle whose diameter spans 5 degrees or less is known as a planetary trio". All of the planets will emerge low in the west - close to the sunset point on the horizon - with Jupiter being the brightest of the three, followed by Mercury and then Saturn, according to EarthSky.
On Jan. 9 shortly after sunset, above the southwestern horizon will be Mercury - the Solar System's innermost planet - will form a "triple conjunction" with Saturn and Jupiter.
If there are clear skies in your area, you should be able to see the conjunction without binoculars - but if you happen to have them, you might as well use them to get an even better view.
So, the 3 planets will occupy a relatively small amount of space in the sky and you will need to look for them at just the right time from just the right location.
Mercury, however, will continue to rise - meaning it remains visible throughout the rest of the month.
The three planets will appear right next to each other for several days, and they'll become centered on January 10, according to EarthSky.
"It was a spectacular sight as both planets [Jupiter and Saturn] appeared in the same field of view of telescopes and binoculars, but in reality it was little more than a line-of-sight trick of perspective, since the two planets remained about 456 million of miles apart", wrote Jamie Carter of Forbes, referencing last month's great conjunction.
