Mercury Sun Conjunction  19 June 2014

It passes perigee – the time when it is closest to the Earth – within a few days of the same time (18 June 2014 11:04 EDT), since it lies on exactly the same side of the Sun as the Earth in the Solar System. It moves to within a distance of 0.55 AU from the Earth, making it appear with its largest angular size. If it could be observed, it would measure 12.1 arcsec in diameter, whilst appearing completely unilluminated.
