Question

How frequently would all the planets of a system be in a straight line?

(I know the answer will be different for each solar system.)

I am looking for general occurence like once in every 10,000 years or such.

I.e. from the star to the farest out planet draw a straight line between all the planets

Scenario 2
From the farest out planet draw a straight line through all the planets and the star but they are not neccesarily all on the same side of the star.

Scenario 3 (the rarest of them all)
1 planet (the habitial one) is on one side of the star and all the other planets are on the other and you can draw a straight line through all the planets and stars.

Scenario 4 (??)
a)All the planets are on the same side of the star.
b)all the planets are on the same side of the star and within 90 degrees of each other
c)all the planets are on the same side of the star and within 45 degress of each other

Thanks for any help with this

Dave
