Mercury is Visible this Week

Mercury is visible in the West after sunset these days. We were fortunate to have a couple clear evening skies this week and Sandra and I got to see Mercury on Wed. and Thur. evenings. There is a limited window of opportunity between when it becomes dark enough to see Mercury and when Mercury sets. 

Here is a picture from my phone. I boosted Mercury's visibility in Lightroom a bit to better approximate what it looked like to our eyes Wednesday evening.
