A Rare Treat


Mercury and Venus

 

So tonight, June 3 2013, I got to see a rare sight. Both planets Venus and Mercury visible just above the horizon. Mercury is the hardest of the inner planets to see because of it’s close proximity to the sun. This photo was taken from the front porch, Venus can be seen just above the horizon with Mercury above and to the left.
