Image Details:

Venus and Mercury on the evening sky.
If Venus is bright enough to be easily spotted with binoculars, Mercury is visible for now only with the telescope. These two planets will dance together on the evening western horizon the next couple days, so if you have clear skies, take a peek, it will not be easy, but the view it will worth the time!
[Right between them, but invisible in the glare of the sunset sky, is Uranus, the upside-down planet]
