Mercury - at last!

Despite being at a wine tasting hosted by our good friends and neighbours Peter & Sue until just before midnight, I got up before dawn and drove to the top of the Heath for a clear view of the eastern horizon. (I should say I had drunk very little: it was a wine tasting and I'm not a big fan of oaky Riojas!)

An irritating little band of cloud lurked in the east, but eventually, at around 7.00am, I caught sight of both Mercury and Venus: finally all five planets were visible at the same time!
