Tonight's Sky for May 2: Mercury Sets 1 Hour After the Sun

It may not be as easily visible as it was about a two weeks ago, but speedy Mercury is still setting an hour after the Sun, which means that it is still relatively easy (for Mercury) to spot after sunset, provided you have a horizon with less than 5 angular degrees of obstruction. Note: a fist held at arm's length simulates 10 degrees.
