MERCURIAN ELONGATION

[the last of three in 2019]
Saturday 19 October from 5:45 pm to 7:15 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☿.” Jupiter♃, Saturn♄ and Neptune♆ will be seen as well.
