The world is waking up to a picturesque planet parade.
Just before dawn, the eastern skies over much of
are decorated by a notable line of familiar planets.
As April ends, the angular distance between Venus and Jupiter will gradually pass below a degree as they switch places.
In June, the parade will briefly expand to include Mercury.
