Sky Guy Viewing ALERT!!! 8-16-16: See Mercury At Its Best Tonight AND All 5 Naked Eye Planets

Hey Space Placers!

Mercury is farthest from the Sun tonight so look in the West after sunset to find it.

Here is a chart to help you find not only Mercury, but Jupiter and Venus as well.

An unobscured view of the Western horizon is a must and binoculars will help immensely.

After you have seen the three take a turn to the left, South, and see Mars and Saturn in the South to see all 5 classical naked eye planets in one session.
