With an excellent view towards the Western horizon on Sunday night, Venus and Mercury were easy to see.
The Planet Hunter: Venus and Mercury!
My first thought was, oh crap, I almost forgot about that! I further completely forgot that Venus and Mercury would be very close tonight.
The Planet Hunter: Mercury and Mars!
I have now learned how high Mercury can truly be.
Would this finally be the night I see Mercury? I had been searching for Mercury on and off for seven months.
