Watch Mercury and Mars Appear in the Night Sky: Don't Miss Out!


Want to see Mercury? You're in luck. The planet is due to make an appearance right before Valentine's Day, and you should be able to see it with your naked eye.

The best time to view this planet will be about 30 minutes after sunset between Feb. 12 and 20. The planet will position itself at least 10 degrees above the horizon in the west-southwest, so make sure you have an unobstructed view of the horizon.

Mercury isn't the only planet that will put on a show, though. Mars will join Mercury this Friday just after sunset. The Red Planet will hang just beneath Mercury, though it may be difficult to see since it will appear dimmer than usual.
