Early Risers – A good time to see Mercury in the sky

Mercury on Oct. 11, 2015

Giving away my age, I can’t help thinking of the old song The Age of Aquarius this week.  Lines such as Mercury aligning with Mars comes to mind.  I have been wondering about the bright lights (planets not stars) showing up in the pre-dawn horizon.  turns out we have four planets; Venus, Mars, Jupiter and…. drum roll…. Mercury lighting up the sky.  I’m enjoying the show as I do leave for work while it is still dark.  It almost makes getting up that early worthwhile.  Doc
