Weekend Sky Watch

Skymap of Venus and Mercury April 4 2010 (NASA)

This weekend, look to the west just after sunset, and in the early evening twilight on Saturday and Sunday you should be able to see the two innermost planets of the solar system, Venus and Mercury, just above the horizon. It’s the best chance you’ll have to see both planets in similar array until November of 2011.

For more, see NASA’s Sunset Planet Alert.
