The planets appeared in the sky at the same time. and line up like this caused by each planet orbiting in a position that can be seen at the same time from the point of view of an observer on Earth As for the view from space, the planets are not aligned in a straight line at all. Because each planet orbit is distributed according to the orbit of that star. The opportunity to align to observers on Earth at the same time is an infrequent phenomenon. Especially the appearance of up to 5 stars if the sky is clear without rain clouds. Thai people will have the opportunity to see the beauty of the astronomical phenomenon before dawn. all over the country
