If the clouds hold off tonight and Sunday, you'll be able to see the planets Venus, Mercury and Jupiter right after sunset.

According to Cleveland State University Research Astronomer Jay Reynolds, it's not rare but doesn't happen very often.

According to NASA Science News, the planets have been gradually moving into a triangle formation, or a "triple conjunction." The last time that happened was May 2011, and it won't happen again until October 2015.

The best night to view the planets will be Sunday, according to NASA, and the best time to do so is a half hour to an hour after sunset.

Reynolds will have telescopes available at Edgewater Park for park visitors to get a closer look at the planets.
