While you were finishing your beauty sleep — or hanging out with Madonna and Prince — you were missing one of those rare celestial events this morning.

Venus, the moon, Mars, and Jupiter were all together in the early morning sky, something that won’t be happening again for years.

Later this month the three planets will all meet in the closest grouping of the three until January 2021.

Another planet, Mercury, joins the show on Sunday morning, according to Universe Today.
