The Inner Planet Mercury
Mercury is the innermost and smallest planet in the Solar System, orbiting the Sun once every 88 days. It completes three rotations about the axis for every two orbits. Mercury is bright when viewed from Earth, ranging from −2.0 to 5.5 in apparent magnitude, but is not easily seen as its greatest angular separation from the Sun is only 28.3°. Since Mercury is normally lost in the glare of the Sun, unless there is a solar eclipse, Mercury can only be viewed in morning or evening twilight.
