  • OT -- Ever seen Mercury, the planet?

    Of all the planets in our solar system, five (not counting the earth) can be viewed with the unaided eye. However, due to its proximity to the sun, Mercury can be very difficult to view, and many people go their entire life without ever seeing it. If you're willing to get up early (just before sunrise) this morning (Thursday) you can actually see it fairly easily due to its location in its orbit.

    My second favorite inferior planet

    It is/will be easy to see. Get up 1-1.5hr before sunrise(depending on your location), find Venus and Jupiter (the two brightest bodies in the sky at the time) and draw a line through them towards the horizon and there Mercury will be! It is visible throughout mid-August, but will be brightest tomorrow/this morning.

      Awesome! I see Venus and Jupiter perfectly when I'm leaving for work in the morning.

        Great advice! hil: Sunrise here is at 0616. I'll see what I can see at 0430-0500. Aka - oh-dark-thirty.

              Did anyone catch the meteor shower the other night? Saw a ton of them streaking across the sky. Tried to get pics but they didn't turn out good at all.

                Clouds sucked, and for some reason I never have a good western horizon.

                  Hey! Venus is a cool planet. The brightest thing in the sky besides the sun and the moon! Brighter than any star. It's also the only planet that rotates clockwise in our solar system as well. If it wasn't for 95% carbon dioxide atmosphere and the crushing pressure, I'd go!

                  Did you see anything? I'm going to look tomorrow as I'm driving down to Hanford

                    We have a moon garden at our school... got together a bunch of friends and layout in it watching the meteor shower! It was pretty good, a lot of really slow movers.

                      Is the red planet Mercury like the crimson eye of Cerberus?

                        Astrophotography is something I'd like to get into!

                        once took a pic of venus and jupiter in a single shot, then cropped them closer to each-other



                        it's a pretty crazy feeling when you see planets are actual spheres rather than sizeless points of light in the sky!

                              Nice! My ex-gf was way into astrophotography. Have you ever seen Saturn through a telescope? We had a few observatories at my previous school, and being able to see saturn and the rings was the coolest thing I've seen through my eyeballs. Highly recommended if you want to feel small.
