Mercury, Venus and the Crescent Moon, Thursday January 22, 2015
Just a reminder that on the 22nd Venus, the thin crescent Moon and Mercury form a triangle low in the twilight.
While Venus is bright you will still need a reasonably flat, clear horizon to see all three objects, although you may need binoculars to see Mercury. Venus provides a helpful signpost to finding Mercury which is below and to the left of Venus.
