Did the planets align on Wednesday march tenth 1982?
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.

The sad truth is, "all" the planets will never align because they are at different angles from the sun. If you look at the solar system in 2D from the top (in general) they wi…ll align someday, but as far as looking at them in 2D from the side goes they will probably never align perfectly. Well not as long as any of us are alive anyway.
It is a function of the synodic periods of the planets.
No. The planets CANNOT all "line up", because they all orbit in slightly different planes. We occasionally see one or two planets line up, but never more than three at once.
Planets align... yes...they do in fact align...
Absolutely nothing! Aside from astronomers taking pictures and recording when it last happens so that they know when it will next. you don't have to worry about any ghosts or …zombies rising from their graves and taking over the earth.
March 17th was a Wednesday this year (2010).
I read a book and it says they never aligned about 4.6 billions of years.
don't worry your not gonna die on December 21, 2012 jsut a mythhh!
Nothing detectable without very sensitive instruments.
As the correct date, time and year are not known , we can not say anything about the alignment of planets.
The planets are lined straight.
The planets are very much as it suppose to be, and should be the same thereafter.
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.
