At what time of day do tornadoes usually form? Answer: Usually in the hours, between 2 and 6 p.m. 2005. - I have always been intrigued by the planet Mercury. It is not my favorite sky target, but of the five classical planets, Mercury is by far the most " Its closeness to the sun creates the difficulties that make viewing it, even through binoculars, a victory. For the next two weeks, if the weather ,~7, hope to be able to observe Mercury as a star like object with just my eyes. Here is what is happening. As the Earth and Mercury revolve around the get to see Mercury's motions play out right before sunrise or right after sunset, depending upon Whether Mercury is west or east of the sun. There is an of greatest elongation when Mercury appears at its greatest separation from the sun. That occurs on March 12. The angle is to the east of the sun which means that will be visible after sunset in the west. Unfortunately, this event occurs only four days after Mercury has reached its closest distance to the sun. This means that as est elongations go, this one should be pretty lame. Enter the time of the year which means everything to how elongations are perceived. The planets orbit in same plane as the Earth. This plane is called the ecliptic. In the spring from mid-latitude locations in the Northern Hemisphere, the ecliptic intersects the t steepest angle. This allows planets like Mercury and Venus to remain above the horizon for their longest possible durations alter sundown. From March 6-18, will be visible after sunset for about 1-1/2 hours. You will still need a flawless western horizon and a very clear evening. View with binoculars about 30 minutes after down about one full field ofview above the horizon. Star like Mercury should become plainly visible to the unaided eye as it gets darker, www.astronomy.org JOHN DEERE NOTHING RUNS LIKE A DEERETM N TRACTORS 0% APR FINANCING Fixed rate financing for 24 months~ WHEN IT COMES TO FINANCING 0% REALLY ADDS UP. s t~et6% APR financing on Compact Utility Tractors.
