- Tonight is the peak viewing night for the rare alignment of five planets. This alignment will not appear again for decades, and it approaches its peak after the summer solstice when the crescent moon joins the parade. The procession of planets — Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, in that order — will be visible directly above the eastern horizon within an hour or so before sunrise through the end of the month, according to AccuWeather. The best time to celebrate is before 5 amon 24 June, when the crescent moon will join the procession of planets. The alignment of the planets can be seen without a telescope, although AccuWeather notes that Mercury may be difficult to determine because it is the darkest of the planets and will be lowest in the sky.

Are you a resident of Haddams-Killingworth Finding an investment alternative to the stock market?
Bloomberg recently asked the experts where they would invest $100,000 in right now, and many had the same answer: fine art.
Do you think you can’t afford Picasso? Well in 2012, Congress passed the Jobs Act, which allowed for artwork to be secured. A company called Masterworks.io has built the largest platform for buying and selling technical securities. In the past, you could only buy shares of companies like Apple, but with this investment app, you can unlock this powerful investment.
Meaning, you can invest in stocks of art works of millions of dollars. And in turbulent times, it turns out that fine art can be a wise investment. Here is the reason:
- Low correlation to stocks According to Citi
- Historically, contemporary art is 23.2% back. When inflation is >3%
- contemporary art prices outperformed the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
