See Mercury

I've seen Mercury a few times over the past week in the early evening. It is really nice to see and easy to spot as Venus is doing a good job of showing where to look. StarDate have two podcast episodes, one covering Mercury in the Evening (MP3: 1.0 MB) and the other covers all three of the current evening planets (MP3: 1.0 MB) - Venus, Mercury and Uranus. On Thursday evening Venus and Uranus will be separated by less than a finger width at arm's length according to StarDate, although you'll need good binoculars or a telescope to see it.
