Moon set to align with three planets and the brightest star
Just weeks after the total solar eclipse in August, there's another extraordinary astronomical treat to look forward to.
On Monday, the moon is set to align directly with three planets and one of the brightest stars that can be spotted from Earth.
The phenomenon known as lunar occultation only occurs every 28 years.
Over the course of 24 hours, the moon will block Venus, Mercury, Mars, and the star Regulus.
People in Australia, Indonesia, and New Zealand will have the best sighting of this rare moment.
The entire event can be watched in real time on the International Occultation Timing Association website.
