Tonight is the best night to spot Mercury after sunset

According to a story in Astronomy Magazine, Mercury will be 18° above the horizon at sunset tonight, dropping rapidly over the next week. Here in New Hampshire, USA, it’ll also be 16° South of true West, visible starting at 5:00PM EST, and setting around 7:00PM. Everyone should try and see all the other planets in the solar system during our stay here on Earth.

Don’t miss it! I might even head to my Dad’s house to point it out to him, since he’s never seen it.
