20th of January 2016: extraordinary planets alignment !!!


Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Venus and Mercury, all in a row. The five brightest planets visible to the naked eye in the sky, ‘hung’ in a imaginary line that runs from the south-east to the west. Such a configuration has not happened since 2005 and will be an opportunity to admire them all in this fascinating choreography. To observe this it won’t take long but it will stay alive for quite some time: the show will indeed take place from January 20th for about a month. It will be easy to identify the players, beginning with Venus and Jupiter, by far the brightest bodies of the night sky after the Moon. Among them, along the virtual line, Saturn and Mars. Completing the quintet will be Mercury, which will be built near dawn, or a little after six in the morning. Towards the end of February it will take part to the unusual alignment even the Moon. Not only planets, not even just the Moon, but also beautiful stars like Scorpion whose red heart Antares will lie by Saturn, Virgo with bright white Spica not far away from Mars and the bright red Arcturus northwards. Enjoy!


2015 – a great year – those were my wishes at its early stages…

Those were the wishes for this year which is going towards its end….most have happened and some are still meant to happen, but I may say that the prospectives are good. Courage and self confidence shall never miss, but hope and willfulness above all. I wish you all the very best for the remaining of this amazing year and the next one(s).
