Highland Road Park Observatory

MERCURIAN ELONGATION

[the first of three in 2019]
Tuesday 26 February from 5:30 pm to 7:00 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☿.” Mars♂ will also be seen.
