More Mercury

After some really nasty days of rain (suburbs just to the north of us were flooded), the skies cleared briefly to allow me a glimpse of Mercury near Antares. It will be similar to this again tommorow night. I've photoshopped Mercury and Antares a bit so they will show up on the thumb nail. Click the image for a larger size version where you can see Mercury clearly and the stars in the Scorpions tail. Venus is in the "Lid" of the "Teapot" of Sagittarius (the teapot is upside down for us Southern Hemispherians).

Ian,

Thanks for the reminder that Mercury is in the Scorpion!
