Mercury in Gemini – June 12, 2020

Mercury has been in Gemini this month, and I got the picture above a few weeks ago.  A nice conjunction of Mercury, the crescent Moon, and a comet (too dim to be seen with the other two, but there) was predicted for June 21, and my husband and I had scouted out the best view to the West in our neighborhood during one of our evening walks.  Alas, the rain clouds did not cooperate.  But there is always sometime to see when you look up!  Which I’m looking forward to doing again once our skies clear here.
