At Hong Kong time 4:47 a.m. on June 24, 2022, reporters observed a rare astronomical phenomenon of “eight-planet alignment” at the East Dam, Saigon, Hong Kong.

Mercury, Venus, the Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn could be clearly seen with naked eye, and the “five-planet alignment” could also be clearly photographed by cell phones, but Uranus and Neptune couldn’t be seen clearly with the naked eye.
