Look for Mercury and Venus Tonight

Yesterday, Bob pointed out a post on The Old Salt blog that referred to this interesting article "Sunset Planet Alert" from NASA.

Last night we had our sundowner kind of late and it was dark by the time I had a martini on the foredeck. It was so very cool to be able to see the planet Mercury.  Looking forward to seeing Mercury and Venus so close together this weekend!

Speaking of this weekend... This is a very long weekend (Thursday-Monday) in St Croix and it is when everyone seems to go camping.  There are many tents set up on the beach by us in Christiansted over beyond the Seaplane on that parky bit near the projects.  There were some good BBQ smells coming from over that way last night, along with live music.

Have fun!
