Featured above is the majestic planetary alignment visible in the early morning hours of late April and early May 2022. This eye-catching conjunction was observed from the Hyblaean countryside of Sicily, Italy, on April 27, 2022. From left to right and from the lowest to the highest are Jupiter, Venus, Mars, and Saturn. The old crescent moon, at lower left, adds a little panache to the twilight sky.
