A rare beautiful conjunction of three planets with moon will be visible in the night sky theatre today.

Mars, Saturn, Venus and the very tender crescent Moon will be visible in the western sky, Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators (SPACE) Director C B Devgun said.

The geometrical pattern will provide an opportunity to the sky gazers to watch and click the celestial spectacle, he added.

The rare alignment, where the three planets will form a triangle, along with the moon will be visible in the night dome, N Sri Raghunandan Kumar said today.

The beautiful gathering of planets in the sunset sky -Venus, Mars, Saturn and the crescent Moon apart from the Perseids meteor shower is a bonus for the sky gazers, Devgun said, adding it will be visible to the naked eyes.
