Hey, don't forget Sedna! That little extra tug from the back in this planetary alignment shall herald the end of the world! ;)

Does anybody want to see a photograph of the crescent moon and Mercury that I took with my DigiCam on 03/22 at 7.47 pm?

The following pic shows Crescent Moon and Mercury as seen with naked eyes.

Can you recognize Mercury?

This was the last chance to see Mercury in the evening in this year!
