He said all the planets together could increase the tides on Earth by about 2%. According to the calculations I did once, all planets pulling together in the same direction at the same time exerted a gravitational pull of about 0.55% of the Moon's pull on the Earth. Either way, no big deal.

I really dislike the word "align" when it comes to planets. The solar system is not a clock, nor does it work like one. So, a few celestial bodies are going to be sort of in a straight line, but not exactly. So, big deal. Still, it's cool when three planets are so close together I can watch all three in the eyepiece of my telescope at the same time.
