ScienceCasts: Sunset Triangle

May 23, 2013

The three planets were easily visible to the naked eye in spite of the bright twilight glow,” says Espanel. “Mercury should be even easier to spot in the coming days as it climbs higher into the sky. ”

In the nights ahead, the line of planets will collapse to form a triangle. At closest approach on May 26th, they will fit within a circle less than 3o wide. Start watching tonight–it’s a great way to end the day
