Planetary alignment - Jan 4th 2014

Postby majikmoo » Wed May 06, 2015 9:29 pm

Hi all - please could someone tell me which planets would have been in alignment on this date? Also which order they would have been visible in and which direction they would look to be?

It's for an illustration....

Sorry if this sounds like a silly question!!

You could download Stellarium (freeware) and it would tell you.
