The Jupiter and Mercury Conjunction

It was cloudy last night, but cleared up tonight so I got a couple of pics.  I am in Yuma so they were just taken outside my hotel, not the most scenic area but some nights you take what you can get.

Jupiter left, Mercury right.  Mercury will keep getting higher in the sky and Jupiter will get lower over the next few days.  Very easy to watch them move.

Many people have never seen Mercury…this is a good time to give it a shot!
