Southern Cross Stargazer for May 4-10, 2014

In the evening dusk, the crescent moon floats in the west between bright Jupiter (right) and Procyon, Little Dog (left). Aim binoculars to dark earthshine on the lunar surface. Mercury (first rock from the sun) appears 5 degrees directly below the Seven Sisters (Pleiades cluster) near the west-northwestern horizon. Due to its closest orbit around our scorching sun, Mercury maintains a low altitude near the horizon.
