MERCURIAN ELONGATION

[the first of three in 2021]
Saturday 23 January from 5:15 pm to 6:45 pm
at the Burbank Soccer Complex
No admission fee. For all ages.
Binocular recommended.

Periodically Mercury☿ reaches its greatest angular separation in the sky (elongation) from the Sun☉. This is the safest way to view Mercury☿ by amateurs.

Come join us at the Burbank Soccer Complex! The planet will appear as a “half-Mercury☿.” The waxing gibbous Moon and Mars♂ will also be seen.
