Celestial Traffic Jam

The famed Perseid meteor shower isn't the only sky show peaking Thursday. That same night, four planets, an asteroid and the moon will huddle together in the western sky in a celestial traffic jam, astronomers say – National Geographic
As an added treat on Thursday, the waxing crescent moon will hang below the planetary trio. By Friday night, the moon will climb up to the left of the conjunction.

Called a conjunction—when celestial objects get close to each other in the sky—this is one event that observers worldwide won't need binoculars or telescopes to enjoy.
