Planet zodiac alignments throughout 2018

This view shows where the Sun, planets, dwarf planets and even Chiron (for astrology lovers) are in the sky (relative to the zodiac) for the year 2018.

This allows any visitors who cannot see the flash application to see the positions of the planets at any date during the year by stopping the animation at the appropriate time.

Where planets are glowing it shows that they are in retrograde - i.e. they appear to be moving backwards from their normal motion (in relation to the stars) when viewed from the earth.
