In the Sky This Week – May 26, 2020 — 1 Comment

  1. Thanks to your heads up, I went out yesterday to some athletic fields near my home that had an unobstructed western horizon. I spotted Mercury (through binoculars)at 8:12 PM, but mistook it for Venus. So I kept scanning the skies between it and the Moon, looking for Mercury. By 8:30, it began to dawn on me that I had been looking at Mercury all along, and by 8:40 I was certain. Mercury was now visible naked eye, and Venus must have been behind the tree line all along.
