Mercurial Mercury.

20130218-053656.jpg

Last night Mercury was at the farthest distance from the sun that it so quickly follows over the horizon.  It is usually not visible; its glow being washed out by the sun.  But for the next few nights you can catch a glimpse of Mercury low in the west, just before it sets about an hour after the sun.

This is a shot I took as we were leaving the marina tonight.  It’s hard to see.  Look left of center above the horizon.
