Did You See Jupiter and Mercury This Week?
We did. We went up to our observing location just below the Wise Observatory. When we arrived around 6:30PM the sky was still too bright to see even Jupiter. As I turned to setting up my tripod and camera to take a photo, I looked up and all of a sudden could see both Jupiter and Mercury! What a beautiful sight to see them in a clear sky at sunset just above the dome of the Weiss Observatory as they were preparing for their night's research. Wish you could have been there with Donny, Yair and me.
