elusive planet mercury shines in the thanksgiving sky: how to see it


now is the time to look up and see mercury, a planet that usually lingers too close to the sun for skywatchers on earth to observe. mercury will reach its greatest elongation — the point in its orbit at which it appears to be the farthest away from the sun as seen from earth — today (nov. 23) at 7 p.m. est (0000 gmt on nov. 24). because of its apparent distance from the sun, mercury will shine brighter than usual at magnitude -0.4. to find mercury, look low on the western horizon around sunset. the planet will appear 22 degrees east of the sun, or a little more than twice the width of your fist held at an arm's length. it will be visible to the naked eye for up to an hour after sunset. before sunset, however, bright light from the sun can make it difficult to see.

now's the time to spot (not-so) elusive mercury


once each year in the fall, mercury moves into favorable position to be seen in the morning twilight sky. during this 10-day time frame, the so-called "elusive planet" is not so difficult to see after all. if there is a planet that has gotten a bad rap for its inability to be spotted, it's mercury. here is just one example: in their book "new handbook of the heavens" (mcgraw hill, 1948), authors hubert bernhard, dorothy bennett and hugh rice discussed how to observe the bright naked-eye planets, and they played up mercury's reputation for being hard to see.  "one of these points of light is elusive," they wrote. "that is mercury, which stays close to the sun like a child clinging to its mother's apron strings. because you must look for it so soon after sunset or before sunrise, there was a

facts about the planet closest to the sun


mercury is the closest planet to the sun. as such, it circles the sun faster than all the other planets, which is why romans named it after their swift-footed messenger god. the sumerians also knew of mercury since at least 5,000 years ago. it was often associated with nabu, the god of writing. mercury was also given separate names for its appearance as both a morning star and as an evening star. greek astronomers knew, however, that the two names referred to the same body, and heraclitus, around 500 b.c., correctly thought that both mercury and venus orbited the sun, not earth.

see mercury meet up with saturn tonight in the 1st of 3 conjunctions


about half an hour after sunset tonight (nov. 28), mercury will shine close to saturn in the early-evening sky for the first of three close approaches between the two planets. mercury and saturn will shine about 3 degrees apart from each other low in the southeast; 3 degrees is about the width of your thumb held up toward the sky, according to an article on earthsky.org. mercury is about twice as bright as saturn, and both planets should be visible through binoculars in the same field of view. so try that method if you can't discern both by eye.

mercury is joining 2017's evening sky: how to see it


venus will leave the evening sky this week as it passes through inferior conjunction on march 25 and transitions into a morning object. but as venus departs the evening sky, another planet will soon take its place: mercury, the planet closest to the sun. beginning now and running into the first week of april, mercury — a somewhat overgrown version of our moon — will have an evening appearance about as favorable as northern hemisphere denizens ever get to see.  in general, the most favorable elongations of mercury — occurring in morning or evening — are those when the planet rises or sets in a dark sky, and that situation will occur for more than a week beginning later this month. from march 27 through april 5, mercury will set at (or shortly after) the end of evening twilight, which will o

increase use of marijuana will bring more tragedies


particularly given the horrific accident on i-880 christmas eve, i was shocked that the mercury news would prove so irresponsible as to encourage people to use marijuana with the front page headline “line up for it — now legal” on jan. 2. we lost a california highway patrol officer, a father of three whose partner also suffered injuries, because of an individual driving at least 80 mph on a freeway on-ramp while under the influence of both alcohol and marijuana. (his speed had topped 100.) assuming increased use due to legalization, we will have no trouble anticipating what tragedies the misguided legalization of pot portends for our state, and the mercury news has earned a share of the blame. jerry jeskasan josesubmit your letter to the editor via this formread more letters to the editor






scorching-hot mercury has a surprisingly icy north pole


mercury has much more ice scattered across its north pole than previously thought, new research suggests — both inside craters as well as in shadowed terrain between them. the small deposits add to a significant amount of previously unrecognized water ice, researchers said in a statement. mercury may seem like a surprising place to find ice: although nights can get as cold as minus 275 degrees fahrenheit (minus 170 degrees celsius), temperatures can soar to 840 degrees f (450 degrees c) during the day. this is more than hot enough to boil away any water on the surface. but mercury's axis has very little tilt, so its polar regions don't receive much direct sunlight. this keeps the floor of some of its polar craters in perpetual shadow, researchers said in the statement. mercury also has alm
