“Cardinal Climax” alignment

I tried desperately to get this video to KATU For airing.

A rare “Cardinal Climax” alignment took place and I got a portion of this taking place. I don't know if you can see the small dot that blackens a small portion of the sun.This occurs when a rare five-planet alignment so rare that it may not happen for thousands of years.
Some, say "this is the meanest, nastiest, most challenging and most transformational of any planetary phenomena in all of written history."

Many think that this event is so powerful it would effect the markets and effect the earth in drastic measures. But as you can see our poles didn't shift and life goes on. Proving once again that the alignment of this "Great Blue Marble" called Earth goes on its way.

Unfortunately clouds from the smoke won't allow me to capture the planets at this time.

I'm thinking Venus since we can see it in our nightly sky (sometimes during sunrise/sunset) and it's the closest planet between Earth and the Sun. Mercury is too small.
