Tonight's Sky for June 23: Mercury Moves to Morning

Remember a month ago when Mercury was so well placed for viewing in the dusk sky? Well, no more now as the little planet has since dropped out of view, moved into conjunction with the Sun, and now has officially crossed into the morning sky. While still too close to the Sun to see now, look for Mercury to pop out of the predawn light in the coming weeks as it moves farther away from the Sun a little more each day until it peaks in height in mid July.
