Elusive Mercury has commenced its apparition in the western sky after sunset following its superior conjunction behind the Sun on 2020 DEC 19. This should be s rather favorable apparition except for observers 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.
