Mercury as a Spring Evening Star

Recommended Posts

Elusive Mercury has commenced its apparition in the western sky after sunset following its superior conjunction behind the Sun on 2022 APR 03. This is the most favorable apparition of 2022 for observers north of the tropics.

Photos and descriptions of Mercury during this apparition would be welcome additions to this thread.

Last weekend I observed Mercury as it sat next to the Pleiades. Was fantastic to observe in my 80mm refractor. Grabbed my DSLR and grabbed the image below. Stack of 10 frames, processed in Affinity Photo.
