    Cool Mercury as Late Autumn Morning Star

    Elusive Mercury has commenced its apparition in the predawn eastern sky following its inferior conjunction (including transit) between Earth and Sun on 2019 NOV 11. This is an especially favorable apparition for all observers other than those south of the tropics.

    My table of events for this apparition appears under the links for my related graphics at https://www.CurtRenz.com/mercury.html

    Photos and descriptions of Mercury during this apparition would be welcome additions to this thread.

    Got a good view of Mercury this morning, chasing Mars and Spica up the ecliptic. It's a bright little bugger, which is fortunate for us since it's always close to the brightening horizon. Thanks for the heads-up.
