The planets did not align per say; however they did come into a state of Syzygy ( look on wikipedia; and commit to memory, because its great for Scrabble). On that date (3/10/1982), all 9 planets came with in 91 degrees (this is debated, I've heard as much as 95 degrees) of alignment, on the same side of the sun. This is a very rare event, and will only happen once in the length of human kind. We would have to be pretty lucky to last another million or so years. Looking at it from a purely statistical standpoint, all 9 planets will never perfectly align in the same plane. March 10th 1982 is the closest we will ever get.

It is called planetery alignment.
Two or three planets align from time to time, but an alignment ofall the planets would never happen. The chances of the planets ever lining up in our lifetime is zero. The ch…ances of the planets ever lining up has been calculated to beabout once every 8.6 x 1046 years. That's 86 billion, trillion,trillion, trillion years. The age of the Solar System is only about 4.6 x 109 years or 4.6billion years and the Universe is only about 13.75 billion yearsold.
Yes. They do every 640,000 years...

It is a function of the synodic periods of the planets.
Planets align... yes...they do in fact align...
March 17th was a Wednesday this year (2010).
I read a book and it says they never aligned about 4.6 billions of years.
Planetary alignments have extremely little affect on the planet Earth, astrologers notwithstanding. At most, they alter the tides slightly.
Some theories state that weather could change and others say that it could be the end of the world. No one is sure about this.
The inner six planets will align in 2040, and all eight in 2854.
Nothing. The tidal forces from the planets are pretty miniscule; and the planets have been stable in their orbits for billions of years. It would make a pretty sight in the sk…y, with Mars, Jupiter and Saturn all visible within a few degrees of eachother - but even then, it wouldnt be spectacular enough to take people's breath away.
In 2007 March 21st was a Wednesday.
The last time Ash Wednesday was on March 7 was in 1984. The next time Ash Wednesday will be on March 7 is in 2068. Easter will be on April 22.
Alignment is an abstract noun and as such it does not possess position.
