Fwd: Venus Meets Mercury in the Sunset Sky

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!

Space Weather News for May 20, 2020

VENUS-MERCURY CONJUNCTION: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look west. See Venus? She's about to have company. Mercury is approaching for a 1o conjunction on May 21st and 22nd. The two planets will be so close together, you can hide them behind a fingertip held at arm's length. Visit for sky maps and more information.
