Mercury’s greatest eastern elongation & Mercury Calendar 2016 (1st quarter)

Mercury Calendar 2016

Mercury – the innermost and smallest planet of our solar system – reaches its greatest eastern elongation (19.7 degrees) on 29th December and will be visible as an early evening object a few times, in the gloaming. Most stargazers know that not only its closeness to the Sun, but also the great eccentricity and inclination of its orbit make Mercury a difficult object for naked-eye observation, although sometimes it shines as brightly as Sirius.

The attached chart contains all needed phases, events and characteristics concerning this planet, and also lists the major aspects in the 1st quarter of 2016. Study this visual calendar to understand how the ’Celestial Mechanics’ works in case of an ’inner planet’ like Mercury.
