Venus and Mercury in the evening sky

Over the first half of February both Venus and Mercury are well place in the evening sky. Venus is the brighter and higher of the two as you can see in the graphic below:

This shows the view from Abingdon at around sunset or just after.

Mercury will be at its furthest distance from the Sun (from our perspective here on Earth) on February 10th when it will get 15 degrees above the horizon.

Clear skies.
