    Default Another Jupiter and Mercury conjunction



    Hello,

    Here is a picture taken today of Jupiter and Mercury just after sunset. Like george7378 said in another thread (Sunset conjunction), it's my first sight of Mercury!

    Beautiful capture - great to find another person who shared the excitement of their first ever sighting - it's amazing how many people do not see Mercury. Just one more planet to go now for me!

    Very nice. I saw Mercury for the first time this past Saturday. I had the pleasure of observing it through my Orion XT12G. It had an almost rainbow look to it, both from the phase and from the red/orange of the atmosphere as it sat low on the horizon. Very cool.
