Hey Space Placers!
I will be giving details soon about next week's activities surrounding Mercury. From the 13th to the 16th Mercury will be in close proximity to bright Jupiter low in the west. This will be an excellent opportunity to see this elusive planet.
On the 17th Mercury gets a permanent visitor - the MESSENGER spacecraft will go into orbit around the planet closest to the Sun. This will be an historic first made all the better by being able to see Mercury for yourself.
