Elusive Mercury has commenced its apparition in the western sky after sunset following its superior conjunction behind the Sun on 2021 APR 18. This will be its most favorable apparition of the year for observers north 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.
