See Mercury in the evening sky

Recommended Posts

I caught a 4 minute glimpse of it with my 15x70s on the 5th, and about 1 minute with the scope before it set.

I have been out watching it for 6 nights out of the 12 since and am set-up tonight.

It's great to watch it transporn from a small near-disc to a larger crescent as the days go by, and also it,s setting

position moving Northwards after the sun.

P.S.   Of Course this time when we lose sight of it ..... it will be heading to cross the sun's disc on the 9th May.

         I have nooked the day off - Clouds keep away.
