Five planets are aligned for the first time in over a decade.

For the first time since 2005, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn can be seen together.

A five-year-old boy held a wedding for his pet pony called Ms Butterball.

Gabe Bush from Louisiana, USA, decided to arrange a wedding for his beloved Shetland pony so she can get married before having future offspring. The young boy was adamant that Butterball should have a proper ceremony, complete with music, cake, tutus and bow ties, after discovering his grandfather planned to breed her with fellow Shetland, Mr Big Stuff. Gabe told CNN: "My mom taught me how you gotta get married before you have babies." According to the news site, Gabe's grandfather Richard Logan Snr - a local minister - officiated the ceremony.

An elderly man was reportedly sucked out of a Daallo Airline passenger plane following a midair blast in Somalia.

The incident reportedly took place at 14,000 feet in the air after the explosion left a gaping hole in the cabin on the Djibouti-bound flight, just five minutes after take-off. US government investigators suspect the explosion to be a bomb but are awaiting further inspection. Survivor Hassan Mohamed Nur told MailOnline: "I saw the passenger, a man in his early 60s, get sucked out of the plane. There was a huge bang. A big hole appeared in the side of the jet and the man disappeared through it." Authorities have since sighted a burnt body 18 miles north of the Mogadishu airport.
